So much better than canned! Used only 4 slices of bacon has that's all I had, and it was plenty. Also used half the salt, which I added towards the end with the ketchup because salt and tomatoes can keep beans from softening. Also increased water to 2 cups to make sure beans were covered in crockpot. Before placing in crock, I used this method to reduce gas: place beans in 6 cups cold water and nothing else, bring to a boil and boil ten minutes. Remove pot to sink, do NOT drain, add 1/4 baking soda and stir like crazy until all foam is gone. Rinse beans well, then place in crock and continue as directed. Left on low overnight.
