BBQ Baked Beans (Sugar-Free)

“From The Allergy Self-Help Cookbook by Marjorie Hurt Jones, c. 2001. Commerically prepared baked beans can be a problem for people with allergies because they often contain sugar and corn syrup, plus ambiguous ingredients such as modified food starch and "natural flavoring." Slowly baking these beans contributes to their wonderful flavor and aroma.”
