BBQ Beans with Ham

Wash about 3 cups navy or pinto beans. Put in a big Dutch oven with 2 ham hocks or some leftover ham; cover with water. Cook all day or about 6 hours, then remove ham from bones and return meat to beans.

2 cups catsup
2 1/2 cups brown sugar
3 tablespoons mustard
2 cloves of garlic or 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder (optional)
2 large onions, chopped
salt (optional)
Cook a couple more hours, adding water if needed.

Testing comment: Very flavorful, but too sweet. I used 2 cups brown sugar. Next time would use 1 1/2 cups. Also used just 2 tablespoons mustard and added 3 stalks celery chopped. Probably would cook it again. We enjoyed it.
