Some additional information can be found here. Looks like butter beans are a specific kind of lima bean, and around here the smaller green limas are what're usually seen.]
Brad, thanx for the link. That is helpful. I bet Sir Dyal could have something to say about this. As for the small green limas, they are worlds a part in flavor and texture from the white ones. The white ones have a creamy, buttery flavor where the greens are something bland like a veggie-- broccoli perhaps. Maybe that's why some people don't like them because those are the ones of which they are thinking.
That's some bring on the cold weather food right there! DEE-licious!
Tex, you're not kidding... I flicked on the A/C and made it so
Chopped ham steak in mac 'n cheese also floats my boat. Have you tried that?
Now this looks like a good stick-to-your-ribs meal. I bet I could do this by switching out the pork with cubes of my homemade beef bacon. Hmmm...
"Adapt, improvise, overcome"-- Now that's what I'm talkin' about! I'd love to see that if you do, SG. Man, I'd luv to try that trick with beef even with kidney or black beans.
