To make baked beans, navy beans (a small white bean) are par-cooked in water, then baked in a sauce for several hours. The sauce can vary depending on the type of baked bean dish you are making. Typically the sauce will include a sweetener, such as molasses, brown sugar or maple syrup. Usually a fat such as pork or bacon, and sometimes but not always some form of tomato, such as tomato paste.
