Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' Baked Beans



  • 4 cups dry navy beans
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/4 pound salt pork, diced
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar or molasses
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 pound salt pork, cut into strips


  1. Cover beans with water in a saucepan. Bring slowly to a boil or soak overnight.

  4. Place in greased casserole and top with salt pork strips.
  5. Bake covered in a 200 degree F oven for 6 to 8 hours. Uncover for last hour of cooking. Add additional water or stock, if beans become dry.
