Method: 
Soak beans overnight. Drain and transfer to a large pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook until they are tender but not mushy, about an hour (depending on the variety of beans used). Drain and return to the pot and add the onion.

In a separate bowl, whisk together maple syrup, brown sugar, ketchup, cider vinegar, mustard power, cayenne, salt and pepper. Pour over beans and onions. Stir to coat. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to very low. Slowly simmer beans, stirring fairly often to prevent sticking. Cook for about 1 1/2 hours partially covered. Adjust seasonings to taste before serving.

To cook beans in a slow cooker, toss cooked beans and onions in a crock pot. Whisk together all remaining ingredients. Pour over the beans and onions stirring well. Cover and cook over low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours, stirring occasionally, if possible.
