Put the diced bacon into a medium skillet and place over medium heat. Sauté until cooked through. Remove cooked bacon and drain on a paper towel. Put the bacon with remaining ingredients into the cooking pot of the Cuisinart® Programmable Slow Cooker. Select Low and set the timer for 16 hours. When time elapses and slow cooker switches to Warm, stir beans, taste and adjust seasoning accordingly. Serve warm. Note: The beans can also be cooked on the stove. Follow same directions and put all ingredients plus an additional cup of water into a large stockpot. Bring mixture to a boil. Cover and reduce heat so that the mixture is just simmering. Simmer until tender, about 3 hours
