Butter bean soup is I think a bold soup. If I use limas I like to use baby limas

  4. Add canned beans and 4 cups water. Bring to a boil season with salt if necessary and lots of pepper ( freshly ground if possible ).
  5. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes or more the longer it cooks the better it will taste. Serve sprinkled with raw onion and home made corn bread
  6. VARIATION:
  7. For slow cooker all-day lima bean soup Substitute one pound dried limas for the canned beans. Cook onion, carrot and ham according to directions. Place in slow cooker with limas. Add 8 cups water along with a little salt and pepper. Turn on low and cook for 8 hours. More or less
