LIMA, GIANT PERUVIAN - Kosher/Gluten Free

GIA-10

Description:

This Lima Bean is traditionally known for its use in Succotash, a dish that was enjoyed by the Native Americans. Mildly flavored and extremely large, about an inch in length, it is similar to the ever popular Christmas Lima. Thinner in width and cream colored, the Giant Peruvian Lima Bean is referred to as butter, curry, lab or pole beans. The creamy texture of the Giant Peruvian Lima Bean makes it a hearty and tasty addition in warm or cold salads. Toss cooked Peruvian Lima Beans lightly with ground black peppercorns and butter. Puree cooked Peruvian Lima Beans with spices and mix with yogurt or sour cream for a tasty dip.

Ingredient Statement:

Giant Peruvian Lima 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, uncovered, for about 2 hours until tender. This bean produces foam, so skim the water regularly.

One cup dry yields 2¼ cups cooked.
