Dave's Baked Beans

This is the time of year for baked beans. This is a recipe of Dave Lieberman's that I altered just slightly by adding the cinnamon and mustard. They turned out nicely, just not as good as my Mom's. I will publish that recipe at a later date.

Dave's Baked Beans

8 slices bacon,chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
3/4 cup ketchup
3/4 cup tomato puree
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cider vinegar
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Salt ans pepper to taste
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. ground mustard seed
pinch of ground cinnamon
2 (28 oz) cans red beans, drained and rinsed

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Put a heavy-bottomed pot with lid over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook stirring often, until the fat renders and bacon begins to crisp, about 6-8 minutes. Add the onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes more. Add everything but the beans and mix well. Bring to a simmer and cook 5 minutes. Stir in beans until well coated, cover and bake in oven for 1 hour. Remove lid and continue baking until the sauce thickens and beans begin to brown, about 15 minutes more. Remove from oven and let cool for 15 minutes.
