Farmhouse Calico Beans

Tonight just seemed like a 'Bean Night'. Gentleman Farmer agreed.
Here's the recipe.
In a deep pot, brown 1 lb. Hamburger (ground turkey, or 1 cup. cubed ham can be subtituted. Tonight, I used ground venison breakfast sausage.)
along with 4 strips bacon and 1/2 large onion, chopped.

When meat is cooked through, add
1 can pork and beans ( I used Bushe's Maple Cured Bacon)
1 can kidney beans, with liquid
1 can black beans, with liquid
1 can Butter beans (or any white bean you prefer)
Add
1/2 C. ketchup (I use 1 can stewed tomatoes)
1/3 C. brown sugar
2 T. Apple Cider Vinegar
1 t. dry mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
Stir and simmer about 1 hour.
Be careful, this will scorch on the bottom if not stirred now and then.

Serve with piping hot buttered corn bread. Enjoy!
