Wes 'n' kathy's authentic original lima bean

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
12 ounces Dried (large) lima beans or butterbeans
1 \N Med. onion (chopped)
2 \N Ribs celery, including tops
1 large Carrot (diced)
4 cups Ham stock
¼ pounds Diced ham
2 cups Water
1 \N Chili pepin (crushed)
2 \N Cloves garlic (minced)

We invented this yesterday, and are still munching on it. I wanted a plain plate of butterbeans for my birthday, but Kathy can never do anything ½ way.

Salt & black pepper to taste

Place all ingredients except salt and pepper in a pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat. Cover pot and simmer until beans are VERY tender (3 to 4 hours). Salt & pepper to taste. Serve this with bread & butter, garlic bread, or dinner rolls. Makes a complete meal. Enjoy! Posted by Wesley Pitts. Courtesy of Fred Peters.
