First I got all my ingredients, which are as follows. (I added bacon because beans and bacon go together)
- 2 cans of white beans (rinsed)
- 1 onion
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 2 Tbsp mustard
After I had all my ingredients out I opened the cans of beans and rinsed them in a strainer and chopped the onion up and put them into the slow cooker. I measured out the brown sugar, maple syrup and water and added them to the other ingredients already in the cooker.
Next I set it to high and let it sit, stirring about every half hour, for 3 1/2 hours. While that was cooking I placed all my bacon into a frying pan and cooked it all until it was crispy but not hard, I drained the grease and cut it up into bite sized pieces and added into the cooker. After that I measured out and added the ketchup and mustard to mix and let it cook on high for another hour, again stirring every half hour.
