LIMA, CHRISTMAS - Kosher/Gluten Free

CHRIS-10

Description:

Christmas Limas are an Heirloom bean, and are related to the Lima bean. These “pretty” beans are similar to the Peruvian Lima but plumper. Christmas Limas are so named due to their festive color, a maroon batik pattern over a creamy background, and a creamy chestnut flavor. Referred to as a speckled Lima or Butter bean, they are also called a Calico bean. Christmas Limas retain their markings after cooking and are about 7/8 inch long and very flat. Christmas Lima beans are a beautiful alternative to potatoes and pasta for starch options.

Ingredient Statement:

Christmas Lima Beans.

Heirloom Bean.

This strikingly vibrant bean is colorful and tasty when mixed with sweet corn to make a traditional succotash. A warm and hearty addition to soups, stews and casseroles, highlight Christmas Limas in gourmet salads or with pasta and cold vegetables. Grilled anchovies with Christmas Limas, mint and chili oil, barbecued baby octopus with Christmas Limas, barley salad with Christmas Limas, or smoked sausage with Christmas Limas are just some of the unique ways to use these striking beans.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

Soak overnight. Rinse and place in a large pot and cover with fresh water. Bring to a boil for 3 minutes, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 90 minutes until tender. This bean produces foam, so skim the water regularly.

One cup dry yields 2¼ cups cooked.
