Chuckwagon Beans

1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup canned tomato sauce
1 teaspoon bouillon granules or 1 bouillon cube
2 tart apples, cored and cut into bite-size pieces
1/4 cup dried cherries or golden raisins
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar, or to taste (or use artificial sweetener to taste)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring, or to taste
3 cans (16 oz.) pink beans, undrained
Cooked whole grains (optional)

Combine all ingredients except beans and whole grains in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, 10 minutes (add a little bouillon if it gets too dry). Add the beans and simmer 10-15 minutes more. Serve over whole grain if desired.

6-8 servings

Note: You'll find bottled liquid smoke flavoring either in the spice section or the sauces section of your supermarket (near barbeque sauces, Worchestershire sauce, and so forth.)
