Honey Baked Beans

The cold weather is finally leaving the area so I'm want to start creating recipes that are good for grilling and summer.

Honey Baked Beans

1 16 oz Great Northern Beans package
6 cups water
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup honey
1 cup ketchup
2 tbsp molasses
1/2 pound bacon, chopped
1/2 cup onion, minced
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Wash and sort beans and soak overnight in 6 cups of water.  Rinse.  Place in 6 cups of water and 2 cups of chicken broth and cook until soft in crock pot.  Drain except for 1 cup of liquid and add in honey, ketchup and molasses.

In a frying pan, lightly cook bacon and before it finishes add in the onions.  Add onions and bacon to bean mixture and continue cooking for another hour on low heat.
