Serves: 4-6
  • 1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil

  • 1 Pound Ham Beens Great Northern Beans
  • 1 Cup Ketchup

  1. Rinse and sort the beans, make sure there are no pebbles in your batch.

  3. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 hr, turn heat off and let sit for 1 hr

  6. Cover with the water and bring to a boil and cover
  7. Move covered dutch oven into a 350 degree oven and bake until the beans start to soften - about 1 - ½ hours
