 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      cups          dried navy beans (Great Northern) -- 1 1/2 lbs.
      3/4  pound         salt pork
    1      medium        onion
    2      teaspoons     salt
      1/4  cup           brown sugar, firmly packed
    2      teaspoons     dry mustard
      1/2  cup           light molasses
      1/4  cup           ketchup
 
 1. Wash beans, discarding imperfect ones. Cover beans with 2 quarts cold
 water; refrigerate, covered, overnight.
 2.Next day, turn beans and water into 6-quart kettle.
 3. Bring to boiling; reduce heat and simmer, covered 30 minutes. Drain,
 reserving liquid.
 4. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
 5. Trim rind from salt pork. Cut pork almost through ,at half-inch intervals.
 6. Place onion in bottom after 4-quart bean pot or casserole. Add beans; bury
 pork, cut side down, in center of beans.
 7. Heat reserved bean liquid to boiling.
 8. Mix remaining ingredients. Stir in 1 cup boiling bean liquid. Pour over
 beans. Add boiling liquid just to cover beans--about 1 1/2 cups.
 9. Bake covered, 6 hours. Stir once every hour, so beans cook evenly. If they
 seem dry after stirring, add a little boiling water.
 10. To brown top of beans, remove cover for last half hour of baking time.
