1 pound dried navy beans, picked over

1 small onion, finely chopped

1/2 cup ketchup

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons yellow mustard

1 1/2 tablespoons molasses

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Freshly ground pepper

1 4-to-7-pound bone-in picnic ham


  1. Combine the beans, 3 cups water, the onion, ketchup, maple syrup, brown sugar, mustard, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker. Set the ham on top, then cover and cook on high, 8 hours.
