"There's nothing like Fresh!"
There is nothing like fresh fruits and veggies from the garden. This year we decided to grow Lima Beans... they have always been a favorite of mine. I've never had them fresh from the garden before so it was a treat to pick them myself and cook them up. Lima Beans are great anyway you fix them... in Salads, Soups, Casseroles or just as a side dish.
After I removed the Lima Beans from the pods I rinsed them and put them on to cook. I took the empty pods and put them into our compost pile so their was no waste.
I decided that I didn't want to wait while they soaked over night so I put them into a pot and brought them to a boil, then I covered them and turned off the heat and let them soak for an hour and then drained the Lima Beans. At this point they were ready to eat or I could add them to a soup or casserole. I was surprised how creamy they were when I tried them... a lot different from buying them frozen... for sure.
You can add just about anything you have fresh from your garden to the Lima Beans... celery, onions, carrots and garlic are always great choices. A little thyme, bay leaves, parsley, salt, pepper and maybe a pinch of Cajun if you like it zesty! You can also add meat if you like... I know a lot of people cook Lima Beans with pork... bacon or a ham bone. It's fun to experiment and see what you can come up with too.
Are Lima Beans a part of your diet? If so, how do you prepare them? I know that they are really good for you so if you haven't tried them yet I recommend you do.
