Old-Fashioned Baked Beans

2 cups navy beans
1/2 pound bacon
1 onion, finely diced
3 tablespoons molasses
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar

Soak beans overnight in cold water. Simmer the beans in the same
water until tender, approximately 1 to 2 hours. Drain and reserve
the liquid.
Preheat oven to 325F. Arrange the beans in a 2 quart bean pot or
casserole dish by placing a portion of the beans in the bottom of
dish, and layering them with bacon and onion.
In a saucepan, combine molasses, salt, pepper, dry mustard, ketchup,
Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and
pour over beans. Pour in just enough of the reserved bean water to
cover the beans. Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil.
Bake for 3 to 4 hours in the preheated oven, until beans are tender.
Remove the lid about halfway through cooking, and add more liquid if
necessary to prevent the beans from getting too dry.
