This a a southern comfort food which my family loves. I usually only make these on the weekends, so they can cook slow and long at a very low temperature.

Note: This ain't your diet food, but it is so worth the calories you ingest. LOL

How to Make LIMA BEANS W/JOWLS OR SALT PORK (SALLYE)

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash beans thoroughly, picking through to remove any stones or other foreign objects (such as dirt clods)

    Put beans in crockpot with 1 gallon water (or more if needed to cover to about 2" above level of dried beans.

    Turn crockpot on to high
  2. Sear hog jowls in heavy skillet, then transfer to crockpot with beans

  5. Good served with cornbread and fresh green or sliced onions.
