Great baked beans are a great cooks signature. So here at CountryLife4Me we have the perfect recipe every cook should have. The Perfect baked beans. Made with brown sugar and honey. Slow cooked in a crock pot. Yum.

2 lb navy beans (rinsed )
1 tbsp salt
3 cups water
1 slice thick-cut bacon (for flavoring and to remove later)
1/2 cup celery (finely diced)
1 cup onions (finely diced)
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tbsps honey
2 tsps garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 tsps apple cider vinegar

In a large bowl, combine beans and 4 qt water ) Add the salt and soak  overnight. Drain well and pour into slow cooker. Add 3 c. water. Add bacon slice. Cover and cook on high for 6 hours. Suate celery and onion and cook until tender.  Add celery, & onion to the slow cooker. In a medium bowl, whisk together ketchup, brown sugar, and honey. Mix well and add salt, pepper, garlic powder and vinegar. Pour into the slow cooker and stir to combine. Cook an additional 30 minutes to heat thoroughly.  Remove bacon slice and serve up with some delicious corn bread muffins.

NOTE  If you want bacon in your beans precook some and add to pot the last 30 minutes for reheating or add some bacon bits the last 15 minutes of cooking time.
