There are a lot of succotash recipes out there, but I didn't see any like my mother and daddy used to make. Sometimes I think my mother learned a lot of her cooking from my father and his sisters. He was older, 32, when they married, and she was a new high school graduate! Hadn't had time to learn to cook yet. But his mother and sisters were some of the best Southern cooks I ever met.
Here is the succotash recipe we used to have when I was growing up. Very easy to do.
