1 pound dried navy beans

8 ounces uncooked bacon chopped

1 large onion (about 1 cup) chopped

2 1/2 cups water

1/3 cup molasses or maple syrup

1/2 cup ketchup

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon dry mustard

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

1. Soak beans overnight with 8-10 cups of water. Drain and rinse. Discard the soaking liquid.

2. Add bacon to pressure cooking pot. Saute (brown) the bacon pieces until until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove bacon with slotted spoon and put on a plate lined with paper towels.

3. Cook the onion in bacon drippings until beginning to turn translucent, about 3 minutes.

4. Add everything EXCEPT cooked bacon to the pot, stir to combine. Cook on high pressure for 35 minutes. Turn off heat and wait 10 minutes, then do a quick release of the remaining pressure

Check the beans to see if they are done. If they are undercooked, cook at high pressure for another 5 minutes. Do a quick release of the pressure.

Add cooked bacon. Simmer beans uncovered until the sauce is the desired consistency.

Notes

You can do a quick soak of the beans by bringing the beans to a boil in 8-10 cups of water, simmer 2 minutes and then let soak for 1 hour.
