Lima BeansTom is a self-proclaimed lima bean expert (even though I have never seen him eat them in our twenty years of marriage), and he said they were the best lima beans he has ever eaten - but he wouldn't add more pepper. I, myself, am a lima bean virgin, and I thought they were good - with a little bit of added salt.
- 2 quarts fresh lima beans, shucked
- 1/2 teaspoon, heaping, salt
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- Fill a large pot with water, add lima beans and salt. Boil 30 minutes, or until lima beans are tender.
- Drain lima beans, return to pot, add butter and pepper and stir.
