For a more traditional method of preparing this particular bean pot, try the following:
After soaking beans, drain and cover with fresh water and salt and cook until tender (about 1-1/2 to 2 hours) adding water if needed. Drain reserving liquid. Mix beans with remaining ingredients. Pour into 2-quart casserole with tight-fitting lid. Add enough bean liquid to cover beans. Bake covered at 300°F for about 3-1/2 to 4 hours, stirring occasionally. Add boiling water as needed during baking
