Questions, Comments & Reviews

my husband is from louisiana and he always called them (lima beans)butter beans.

I may be wrong, but I believe that Lima beans and butter beans are two distinct beans. Lima beans have a rather strong taste and are much more firm than the mushy textured and bland butter bean.

Do you add any liquid to the crockpot? Thank you ~ Appy_Girl~
