This recipe is from a Church Cook Book ,"The Early Days of Yore". A previous neighbor copied it, and mailed to me a few years back.
It is a very old recipe from the eastern colonies.
MADE WITH LIMA BEANS, CORN, AND SALT PORK.
It is a wonderful dish to take to pot luck dinners.
It is always an unexpected dish, and enjoyed by all.
