Baked Beans with Apples

Ingredients:
1/2 teaspoon regular mustard
1/2 teaspoon dried mustard
1 teaspoon instant coffee
2 onion, chopped
3/4 cup white sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
Boiled water (to moisten and help dissolve dry ingredients)
4 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped, preferably Mutsus or Cortlands
1 1/2 pounds dried beans divided into ½ pound soldier and 1 pound yellow–soaked overnight (reserve bean water for later)
1 package salt pork (about a 2-by-4-inch piece) sliced thin

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350°. Mix together both mustards, coffee granules, onions, sugar, salt (go lightly because of salt pork), pepper, water to moisten. Spray large, heavy pot with cooking spray. Layer as follows: 2-3 pieces salt pork (always put pork on bottom to prevent other ingredients from sticking), apples, moistened ingredients from above, beans. Continue layering until all ingredients are used up and pot is full. Cover and bake all day, stirring every so often. If appearing dry, add some of the reserved bean water. If too wet, cook uncovered for a while.
Dish can be apportioned and frozen in freezer bags if desired. If freezing, do not cook beans beyond firm or they will be mushy when defrosted.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
