Notes

LIma beans here in the South are called butter beans. We use smoked pork to season and cook slowly. Always better the second day. Good eatting!

my husband is from louisiana and he always called them (lima beans)butter beans.

I may be wrong, but I believe that Lima beans and butter beans are two distinct beans. Lima beans have a rather strong taste and are much more firm than the mushy textured and bland butter bean.

Do you add any liquid to the crockpot? Thank you ~ Appy_Girl~
