  • 1 vidalia onion diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon

  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup ketchup I used my homemade Ketchup for this one
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powered
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 2 16- ounce cans cannelini beans rinsed and drained
  • kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In a large sauce pan, render the bacon until slightly crisp over medium heat. Transfer the bacon to a plate and add the onion to the bacon fat. Cook the onions until softened and add the garlic. Cook for 1 minute. Stir in the bourbon and coffee, continue cooking until reduced by half. Approximatley 1 minute. Add the molasses, ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, chili powder and allspice. Bring the mixture to a boil and stir in the beans. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Turn off the heat.
