Kentucky Baked Beans

2 c. dry Great Northern beans

5 c. water

3 or 4 Tbsp. bacon grease

1 c. brown sugar

3/4 c. catsup

1 onion, quartered

1/4 lb. bacon strips, cut in half

Boil beans in water and bacon grease until done (skin shrivels and comes off when a test sample of 1 or 2 beans are cooled rapidly, blow on them). Add brown sugar, catsup, onion and bacon strips and place in roasting pan or bean pot.

Cover and cook at 250° F. for 9 hours total. After 4 hours of cooking, they must be stirred and once each hour after until done.

Water may be added if they get too dry.
