    The night before put smoked pork hocks in your crock pot,cover with water.Cook on low overnight.
    Next morning strain all, save broth.
    Dump hocks from the strainer onto a platter.

  2. NEXT DAY... Rinse your beans twice.
    Then skim most of the fat from the top of
    the meat broth.
    You will be using the meat and broth to add to your soaked and rinsed lima beans to this broth.
    Add a minced onion, 2 tablespoons liquid smoke,and some chopped parsley.
    Cook on low in the crock pot for about 4-5 hours.
    A little water or chickn broth can be added,if needed, to keep it moist.
