Usually in Allrecipes, I can get an idea of how a recipe will turn out based on the reviews, but the reviews for this one were all over the board. One review might say "I followed directions and it turned out bad" and the next review says "I followed directions and it turned out great." This concerned me but I went for it anyway. I didn't know the capabilities of my slow cooker so to be safe, I soaked the beans overnight, then boiled ten minutes in the morning and let them soak for an hour as the directions stated. By the end of the slow-cook time, they were fully cooked. I also took the advice of one reviewer and used tomato paste instead of ketchup. The sweetness was perfect, so I am glad I did not use the ketchup or it would have been too sweet. The beans are now two days old, and I can no longer taste the mustard but only the maple taste. If I were to do this again I would double the mustard, because it seems to fade over time.
