1 16 oz can black beans (or whatever can you have on hand)
1 19 oz can cannelini beans (or whatever can you have on hand)
1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes (Muir Glen Organic canned tomatoes are rated to be the best tasting by Cooks Illustrated)
2 -3 slices of bacon sliced into 1/3" strips (optional)
1 cup chopped onion
2 lg. cloves of garlic, chopped
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tbsp. honey
2 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. dry mustard
2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
salt to taste
Rinse beans well in a colander. Preheat oven to 350.
Mix all the ingredients together in a large casserole with a cover. Mix gently so the beans do not break up.
Place in the oven, covered for 1 hour. Check on it. If the moisture content seems the way you like it, take them out of the oven. If you want to reduce the liquid more, put it back in the oven for 15 more minutes with the cover off. Don't go anywhere in the evening after you eat this where you can not freely fart.
