Wash and pick over the beans. Place them in a bowl and cover them with cold water several inches above the beans. Allow to soak overnight. Drain and place the beans in a large pot with the same amount of cold water as before. Add the onions, bacon and salt. Add the optional tomatoes and sugar, if desired.
