(mine never last more than two days... 8-} ) (RICH HARPERS ORIGINAL INSTRUCTIONS) In a large pot, saute the bacon over medium heat until browned, about 5 minutes. Add the diced onions, and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Add the water, sugar, molasses, ketchup, mustard and bring to a boil. Add the beans and bring back up to a boil, then reduce to a slow simmer and cook 4-5 hours until the beans are soft, adding water from time to time if necessary and stirring often to prevent burning. Season with salt and pepper to taste. These beans will keep, covered and refrigerated about one week.
