Grandma Smith's Rockwell Baked Beans Recipe

This recipe is adapted from Farmer Georgie of Willowood farms - grower of the Rockwell Beans.

2-3 cups of Rockwell beans (each cup is 2-3 servings)
1/2-1 cup dark muscovado sugar
1/4-1/2 cup dried mustard
1 medium onion - chopped
4-5 large cloves of garlic - chopped into large chunks
1 small packaged of cured salt port, cut into 1-inch chunks
Sea salt and tellicherry pepper to taste

Soak beans over night in water.
Place beans in a 2-quart oven-safe casserole dish with lid. Add onion, garlic, salt por and half the brown sugar and dry mustard. Cover with water, enough to conve the beans by about double their depth. Put lid on. Place into oven at 325-250 degrees. Bake for 3-4 hours. Check every 30 minutes, stirring and adding water if the beans start to dry aout. When the beans are soft and creamy, add more brown sugar, dry mustard and salt and pepper, as desired. Take lid off and cook an additional 15 minutes to caramelize the top and cook off any excess water.
