  1. Place a large pot over medium heat. Slice bacon into small bite-sized pieces and brown in pot. Stir in onions and garlic and cook another 2 minutes or so. Pour in remaining ingredients and cook to bring to simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook 4 hours. 

  2. OR, transfer to a pre-warmed crockpot and cook on low 8 hours. The longer these cook the better they taste. Enjoy with anything you'd like!

Recipe Notes

If you just want these to taste more like plain baked beans and reduce the tang, replace the vinegar with another tablespoon of brown sugar and voila! Problem solved.
