This is a great basic recipe for baked beans. I soaked the beans for 24 hours and did not pre-cook them and they were perfectly soft and tasty not too mushy. I added another cup of water in the crock because I like a thinner sauce and a tablespoon of cider vinegar for a little contrast to the sweetness. As to other posters whose beans remained hard after cooking- this has a lot to do with the age of your dried beans. Old beans take a really really long time to cook. Sometimes they do not get soft at all. It has nothing to do with the directions of this recipe. Which in my opinion would make beans slightly overcooked.
