1lb. Large, new-crop, fast cooking Lima beans with classic Lima bean taste and melt-in-your-mouth texture. Chances are, your dear old mom overcooked them. The origin of Lima beans is thought to be Peru (hence the name Lima). White lima beans are popular in the Southern U.S., where the smaller varieties are known as "butter beans." Total bean cook time can range from 1 to 3 hours. Salt when the beans start to soften. A pre-soak of 2 to 6 hours will lessen the cooking time.
