I liked these a lot. From the American Diabetes Association. Serve it with some cornbread, and I'm pretty sure you've got a complete protein fixed up.

Interesting dish. Used a ham bone from an Easter ham sale. Made as directed. Wouldn't change a thing! Thanks, Debbie R.!

This is really good and that it came from the A.D.A. is a real + to me. I did up the ham bone last night and put the bean pot in the oven at 7 am for tonight's dinner and have been tantalized by the aroma. I think it might be able to use a touch more vinegar but Dh sampled an he said no, that it was just fine. Theres something wonderful about beans baking in a heavy pottery crock on a cold winters day. This is delightful, homey and delish. Dh says he'll have it for lunch, no need to wait for dinner. The recipe works very well and I had no need to add any water and the Lima's are tender without being mush.
