Cook white beans according to directions on package until slightly tender. In a saucepan combine the remaining ingredients and simmer for 45 minutes. It is important to cook the beans and make the sauce at the same time so that the hot beans will absorb the hot sauce. Season to taste with honey, salt and pepper. The beans should cook an additional 30 minutes in the sauce so that they are tender and have fully absorbed the flavor.
