I love limas and butter peas, especially with rice.
In fact, so far the only bean I haven't liked is the field pea. NASTY
I ran my elderly neighbor to a doctors appoint, so she cooked dinner for me....
porkchops, greens, field peas,and cornbread.
All good except for the field peas. Ate them, of course, but I didn't like them. Said I did, but I didn't!
I love Lima, OH.
I love lima beans. I buy both frozen baby limas and ford hook limas. Sometimes from dry.
When I was a kid helping Grandma get dinner for the farm hands I remember being asked what vegetable I wanted for lunch. Lima beans, is my answer, gran hands me a bucket and tells me to go out a pick em.
When I was a kid, my Mom served them all the time. The smell would make me gag.
Fast forward, now I love them. I prepare them with either butter or olive oil and a little bit of parm.
