4 thick-cut slices of bacon
1 cup onion, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 tablespoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY MUSTARD
3/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 bay leaf
1/3 cup water
1 (15-ounce) can Great Northern or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15 ounce) can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
Honey Flavors and Colors
Honey has different flavors and colors, depending on the location and kinds of flowers the bees visit. Climatic conditions of the area also influence its flavor and color.
In a large skillet cook bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Crumble and set aside.
Drain fat from skillet and discard. Add onions and sauté until tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients, except bacon. Pour into a quart casserole dish. Bake 40 minutes covered. Stir in reserved bacon, remove bay leaf. Bake uncovered 15 minutes longer, adding more water if necessary.
