I doubled the recipe (1 # beans) and used a crock pot. Used pinto beans instead of the navy (had on hand), subbed A-1 and soy sauce for the Worcestershire (didn't have any), doubled the brown sugar, added 1 tsp dry mustard and 1# bacon. I only used 5 cups of water instead of the 8 it called for and it was still too soupy, even after 10 hrs on high and several hrs on low. I'm thinking the pinto beans swell and soak up much less than the navy beans. We still liked this recipe, just used a slotted spoon. I will try this recipe again with the great northern beans I have. Hopefully they will soak up the juice more. I'll also fry the bacon a little before adding to the pot.
