Ingredients
  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into lardons
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • Three 15-ounce cans navy beans
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Put the bacon in a large, cold cast-iron skillet and cook over medium heat until the fat renders and the bacon is almost crisp, about 8 minutes.

  • Add the apple and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apple is crisp-tender, about 6 minutes.

  • Add 2 cans of beans with their liquid to the skillet.

  • Rinse and drain the remaining can of beans, and add it to the skillet.

  • Add the ketchup, molasses, sugar, mustard, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste, and stir to combine.

  • Bring the beans and apples to a low simmer, then transfer the skillet to the preheated oven.

  • Bake uncovered, until the apples are tender and jammy, about 30 minutes.

  • Serve warm.
