Old Fashioned Navy Baked Beans

1 pound Navy beans
1 quart cold water
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cider or white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup mild flavor molasses
1/2 cup tomato ketchup
pinch of black pepper
hot water as needed
1/4 pound salt pork or bacon, sliced

Soak beans overnight in water. Cover and heat to boiling. Simmer for 30 minutes. Drain, keeping liquid. Place onion slices in bottom of 6 cup casserole. Mix seasonings and turn into pot. Add beans, hot liquid or water to cover. Arrange pork slices on top.

Cover and bake in a 250F oven for seven hours. At end of 4 hours remove one cup of beans, mash, then stir back into remaining beans carefully. Cover and continue to bake. Add liquid several times to keep beans just covered. One hour before serving remove cover to allow salt pork to brown.
