I love succotash but don't really like lima beans! So I tweaked the classic old fashioned way and came up with my own version. My husband really liked it this way and I must say it was a huge success! You may also add smoked ham or country ham to this dish if you desire ( the picture has smoked ham in it - it was my second time making it and I added the smoked ham - wonderful addition!) Family tested and family approved.
