If you are looking for a way to fix lima beans besides boiling them in water try this recipe. I don't think you'll be sorry you tried them. :) If you want to have more of a buttery flavor,remove the beans from the liquid and place into a bowl then add the final 2 Tablespoons of butter and then salt and pepper to taste. I saw the basic recipe on allrecipes.com which was posted to that site by SharonB13.The name is the same as her's, but I changed a few things to the recipe and decided to post it under my own name.Submitted to Food.com ( A.K.A.
