1 1/2TablespoonsCreole Mustard

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
In a heavy cast iron dutch oven, with a tight-fitting lid, cook the diced bacon until it's crispy. About 4-6 minutes. Add the onion and cook until it lightly caramelizes, 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and thyme and cook for about 1 minute. Add all the rest of the ingredients and stir well to combine. Bring to a boil. Cover the dutch oven with lid and place in preheated oven. Bake for 2 hours undisturbed.
Stir the beans well and continue to cook, covered, until the beans are tender about 1 hour.
When the beans are tender, remove the cover and continue to bake until liquid has thickened to a sauce-like consistency. Probably about 1-1 1/2 hours. Do not overcook or they will be a mushy mess. Check to season and add more salt, black pepper or hot sauce to your liking. Remove thyme stems and serve. Oh YUM!
