  • 4 ounces salt pork, cut into 3 or 3 slices
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard or 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • Salt and pepper


  • Place the beans in a large bowl and cover with water by an inch or two and let soak overnight. Alternatively as a quick soak method, place the beans in a large saucepan.
