Dysart’s Maine Baked Beans 

2 pounds dry beans
1 onion
1/2 pound salt port, cut up
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons dry mustard

Soak beans overnight: drain water off. Put in bean pot with enough water to cover beans. Add remaining ingredients, stirring pot. Bake at 250 degrees for about 8 hours. Check beans periodically to make sure they do not need water. If water is needed, add enough boiling water to cover beans again. You may also need a little more molasses at this point. Too much molasses will cause the beans to be hard and too sweet.
