    The best of the best beans
    I love beans so much I could eat a different one at every meal. The Christmas Limas are a special treat. Being a Deep South cook, I add a ham hock, crushed garlic, and some Cajun seasoning to the water. They have become a Thanksgiving favorite, and the nutty flavor really meshes with the turkey, dressing and cranberry sauce.

    Best beans to use up that ham bone with.
    My Husband is not a bean lover but after doing these three times plus bringing them to a potluck he's converted. Cooked Mom style (meaning whatever sounds good with the ham bone) and with molasses they are delicious.

    My new favorite bean! Have the Christmas Lima beans in the slow cooker as we speak and I can hardly wait until dinner. They are so hardy and have held up to a long, slow day in the pot. Not mushy at all. Great taste! Am on here ordering more now.

    The whole family loves them.
    We purchased a small amount of these beans to try and the whole family loved them. They taste nothing like the traditional lima beans. The kids ate them without question.

    Excellent flavor!
    I have used 2 packages of these Christmas Lima beans and given some away to share. Today I cooked (after soaked all night) in fresh water covering lima beans by about 2 inches. Added 1 tsp. granulated chicken soup stock, 2 carrots and 2 stalks celery. Simmered until firm but done.... about 2 hours. Removed celery and carrots. Added 1 tsp Summer Savory and simmered a little while longer to meld flavors. Also 1/2 tsp salt at end of cooking. Fantastic!

    No Wonder They're Heirlooms!
    Now I understand why these beautiful lima beans have been so treasured for many generations. The robust flavor is nothing like the traditional lima bean taste (which I have always avoided eating). These colorful beauties impart not only a rich and hearty flavor to any soup or stew, but they also provide ample protein and fiber, as well. These beans will be a mainstay item in my pantry, for many years to come.

Christmas Lima Beans

Easy to Prepare — a little makes a lot

  • First, sort beans for any foreign matter and then rinse. Some cooks like to do a preliminary soak by soaking beans in water overnight or for at least 8 hours.
  • After optional soaking drain and rinse beans.
  • Next, place beans in a pot, cover with sufficient water, and bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, adding water as needed. Simmer time will vary depending on soak time and size of bean.
  • Alternatively, some cooks prefer to use crock pot techniques.
  • Note: As with any supply of dry natural beans, this product may contain small pebbles, so please remember to sort your beans first.

Yield — 1 cup of dry Christmas limas weighs about 1/2 lb and makes about 3 cups of cooked beans.

Storage — Best if used within 24 months. Store tightly sealed in a dry location away from sunlight.
