Simple to make, these baked beans will leave your backyard barbecue guests positively begging to know your secret ingredient!
In a heavy, medium size saucepan, cook the bacon over medium heat until it begins to brown, about 5-6 minutes. Add the onion, stir well and continue to cook, stirring occasionally until the onion is tender, 5 minutes more. Deglaze the pan with the vinegar and add the tomato paste, Da Vinci Gourmet Caramel Syrup and molasses. Add the beans and season with the dry mustard, salt and pepper. Stir to mix and reduce heat to low. Cover the pan and simmer the beans until the sauce is rich and thick and the beans have absorbed plenty of flavor, about 35-40 minutes.
