- 2 tsp. (10 ml) cider vinegar

- ¼ lb. (100 g) lean pork or low salt bacon, sliced
Sort and rinse beans. SOAK BEANS OVERNIGHT in cold water. Drain. Add 5 cups cold water, cover, heat to boiling, then simmer 30 minutes or until nearly tender. Drain. Place onion slices on bottom of 6-cup flameproof casserole dish. Add remaining 7 ingredients in with the beans, stirring gently to combine, then pour entire mixture into casserole dish. Add enough water to cover mixture, and place sliced lean pork on top. Cover with lid and bake in oven at 250°F for 7 hours.
When beans are tender, remove 1 cup of beans, mash, then stir back into pot carefully. Cover and continue to bake. Add water as needed to keep beans covered. One hour before serving, remove cover to darken up the beans. Salt to taste.

Customer suggestion for Diabetics
Mine is the same as the (original) Thompsons Old Fashioned Baked Bean recipe without the molasses and ketchup.
I add 2 tbsp. of brown sugar OR 1/2 cup maple syrup to my recipe.
I add all the same ingredients such as a medium onion, cider vinegar, dry mustard, salt and pepper; and a small piece of lean salted pork and 1/2 cup water.
Mix and pour into a roasting pan and add water up to bean level and bake at 250-300°F until soft. 6-7 hours.
My husband is diabetic and my recipe is not as sweet and we get the fibre we like from homemade baked beans.
