Default Butter Beans

Butter Beans


1 pound dry lima beans
2 quarts well water
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup of margarine (1/2 a stick)


Soak the beans overnight in the well water, or bring them to a boil, cover them and let them soak for an hour in the boiling water.
After soaking, simmer the beans for about an hour, or until they are almost tender. Add the salt, pepper and margarine. Simmer the beans for another half hour or so, cooking until they are tender, but not mushy, and the broth is somewhat thickened. This may be served as a main dish with Hoe Cakes. It can also be served as a side dish with a roasted chicken. This recipe serves 6 as a main dish, or 12 as a side dish. It may be doubled to serve to the hired help at harvest.
