We love beans!!! Packed with so much nutrition but most of all with fall approaching time to dive into a nice bowl of baked beans. Great for end of summer BBQ, Bonfire & Potluck. These will go fast and everyone will ask for your recipe. I'm not a lima bean lover my hubby is so added them to please him. Truth is I can't even taste the lima beans. You can choose which method to cook these "oven" or "crockpot" I have provided directions to both.
