This recipe is from Creative Canning.  What an easy way to have a side dish ready in moments, or even a main dish meal, alongside a big salad and a crusty roll.  

BBQ Black Beans
Yield 5 pints

1 lb black beans soaked 8 hours or overnight
2 smallish onions chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
2 cups bottled bbq sauce (or substitute your own favorite recipe)
2-3 drops liquid smoke per pint jar (optional)
1 small jalapeno minced and divided among 5 pint jars

Fill beans to the halfway point, add onions and jalapeno evenly.
Add 1/3 cup BBQ sauce per jar and then fill with water.
Process at 11 lbs for 75 minutes pints and 90 minutes quarts.

The beans soak up the water and you are left with a thickened sauce, in a few week the sauce will be very thick as beans continue to absorb the water.
