Pineapple and Bacon Sweet Baked Cannellini Beans-Crock Pot, Oven or Grill

If you'd like to bring something different to your next grill-out or football party... These Pineapple and Bacon Sweet Baked Cannellini Beans are really good folks! The pineapple added a nice little sweet bite, was a dominant flavor and surprisingly tasty with the beans. I deviated a bit from the original recipe by adding fresh bell pepper (instead of pickled jalapenos), and cut back on the bacon and brown sugar. I do highly recommend this recipe, it's now on my list of favorites... And if you want to add more sugar, well, you know your crowd:@)

I used my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker to make these beans.
First, pushed the saute button and cooked my bacon. 
Removed it to a paper towel and poured the fat into a mason jar. Stored it in the fridge to use with something else.
Then I added everything to the vessel and pushed the slow cooker button.
It worked out great!
Leftovers can be reheated on the stove or in the microwave.
My recipe below is a variation of half of the original recipe, you can click the link to see the original.
