• 1 lb dry white baby lima beans
  • 2 teaspoon of salt
  • 4 teaspoon of minced garlic
  • 3 teaspoon of minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (1 fresh tomato diced)
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 can tomato sauce


Sort and soak lima beans, 1 to 2 hour. Use a 3 to 4 quart pot, I boil my water before adding lima beans, but you don’t have to. After water starts boiling add seasons, 2 teaspoon salt, 4 teaspoon minced garlic, 3 teaspoon minced onion, 2 teaspoon sugar, 1 teaspoon white pepper, add raised and sorted lima beans.

Cook slowly until lima beans are almost done. Be careful not to over cook lima beans to much. Before done add 1 can of diced tomatoes (drain tomatoes before adding them), add 1 can of corn. simmer slowly 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in 1 can of tomato sauce simmer two minutes.

“hint” prepare lima beans with “old south” method first if you eat that way.
