My Mother's Baked Beans

Today, I made my mother's baked beans recipe for a cookout tonight. I'd forgotten how great they taste, especially with the required sorghum molasses. I'm sure I'm one of a very few people who actually keep both Karo syrup and sorghum as staples, but they make baked beans shine like nothing else. Well, that and the onions. And the bacon on top before baking. I don't have a slow cooker or would let them simmer all day and get really, really thick. But they're cooling in the fridge now and will get thicken up that way. Although I may have to add a bit more molasses.
