This is real party grub.

Serves 5 hungry or 8 peckish.

500g dried haricot beans, soaked overnight
1.5 litres water
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp dry mustard
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
2 whole cloves or a pinch of ground cloves
1 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp black treacle
100g bacon or gammon, cubed.

Drain and wash the beans. Put them in a large pan with the water and bring to the boil. Do not add salt. Reduce heat and simmer for about 45 min skimming off any scum that rises to the surface.
Set the oven at 150C, 300F.
Pour the beans and liquid into an ovenproof casserole and stir in the rest of the ingredients.
Cover and bake in the oven for 2 hours.
Remove the lid and bake for a further 30 min.

Serve hot with lots of cold beer and a few friends.

Enjoy :D
