These are SO good I crave them sometimes! And their pretty easy to make if I remember to prep the dry lima beans.

Delicious lima beans, DH loved them. Next time I will use a little more of the dry mustard, it would be even better with a stronger mustard flavour. I will be making these again, thanks for posting!!

My husband asked for seconds! I'm keeping this recipe at the top of my list. I love the flavors the mustard imparts to the beans.
