2 1/2 cups navy beans -- soaked 5 hours
1/3 cup molasses
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 medium onions -- chopped
2 whole bay leaves
3 cloves garlic -- minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper -- to taste

Preparation / Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. 2. Drain the beans, cover with fresh water, and bring to a boil for 5 minutes, then drain again. 3. Whisk together the molasses, sugar, mustard, cayenne, Liquid Smoke and soy sauce in a bowl, then mix with the beans and add the onions, bay leaves, garlic, salt and pepper. 4. Place in a bean pot or 2-quart baking dish and add water to cover the beans. Cover and bake until the beans are very soft, 7 to 8 hours. Check periodically and add more water, if needed, to keep the beans from drying out. Remove cover during the last half hour of cooking so a crust can form.
