Baked Butter Beans

375 g Butter Beans
1 large Onions chopped finely
5 cups Water
1 Apple, peeled and chopped
2 Tomatoes, diced
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
2 Bay Leaves
1/4 cup Vinegar (Brown)
1 Tbsp Dry Mustard Powder

Place beans, water and bay leaves in a saucepan. Bring to the boil, cover, turn off heat and leave to stand for an hour (if leaving longer, place in refrigerator). Bring beans to the boil and simmer, covered for 1 hour (or microwave, covered, on HIGH for 30 minutes). Drain beans, reserving 1/2 cup liquid. Add remaining ingredients to beans, pour into a casserole dish and bake, covered, in a slow oven for 1 hour. (Or microwave, covered, on MEDIUM for 30 minutes.)
