Why I Love This Recipe

Slowly simmered organic white beans combine with maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, ketchup and a touch of cayenne for a sweet, tangy take on traditional baked beans. Cooked on the stove top or in a crock pot, these tasty beans are well-suited for feeding a crowd.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound dried navy or other white beans
1/2 large yellow onion, thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
1 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup natural brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
2 to 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 to 3 teaspoons mustard powder
Sea salt, to taste
Cayenne pepper, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Soak beans overnight. Drain and cook in a large pot according to package instruction when beans come to a boil. Cook the beans until they are tender but not mushy. Drain.

Return beans to the pot. Toss with sliced onion. In a separate bowl, whisk together maple syrup, brown sugar, ketchup, cider vinegar and all spices. Pour over beans and onions. Stir well. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to very low. Slowly simmer beans, stirring fairly often to prevent sticking. Cook for about 1 1/2 hours partially covered. Adjust seasonings to taste before serving.

To cook beans in a slow cooker, toss cooked beans and onions in a crock pot. Whisk together all remaining ingredients. Pour over the beans and onions stirring well. Cover and cook over low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours, stirring occasionally, if possible.
