Teee, tiger! I've not see or heard where Dunbar's is these days, but here's hopin they still can turn out a mess of some Lima beans!...It was up over there along the Carolinas that 'they; were calling them 'butter beans.'


To me, lima beans have always been the "green ones", and butter beans have always been the "beige ones". Also, in stores I've visited, butter beans abound in cans, while I can't remember ever seeing lima beans in cans. Lima beans are available in the frozen foods section, but I don't remember butter beans frozen.

I may be just very confused... :?

Yeah, SharkysPal. You are soooo right! Mea Culpa. Those beans (yellowish ones) were called butter beans. But this much was for true: some accomplished home cooks over in those parts would agree that if the b'beans were not cooked enough they'd come off with a 'waxy' finish. And speak of limas over there, some of us would boil them -- seasonings, of course -- with only smoked hocks! And pig out!....I sign off as BEaNhead!
