Recipe : Old Fashioned Baked Beans

Another baked-beans recipe.  Hubby asked if I could find out his mom's recipe... come to find out it's not a secret family recipe or anything like that - it's the recipe on the back of a bag of Thompson's white pea beans from good ol' Newfoundland.  The link is here:

Old-Fashioned Baked Beans

1 lb (454g) Thompson's White Pea Beans
4 cups cold water
1 onion sliced
1/2 tbsp. salt
2 tsp cider vinegar
1/2 tsp prepared mustard
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1/2 cup tomato ketchup
pinch black pepper
Add water as needed
1/4 salt pork or bacon, sliced

Soak beans overnight in cold water. Drain
Pick and rinse beans. Add 4 cups cold water, cover, heat to boiling, simmer 30 minutes. 
Drain. Place onion slices in bottom of 6 cup casserole. Mix seasonings and turn into pot. Add beans, and water to cover. 

Arrange pork slices on top. Cover and bake in oven (250°) for 7 hours. When the beans are tender, remove 1 cup of beans, mash, then stir back into pot carefully. Cover and continue to bake. Add water as needed to keep beans just covered. One hour before serving remove cover to darken beans.
