Candied Lima Beans

READY IN: 6hrs
Recipe by Kimberly S

A homestyle restaraunt called The Ingelnuk served these. They would come out with a big bowl of them and pile them on your plate. They sound odd, but are actually my favorite way to eat Lima Beans!

Top Review by Ambervim

The flavor is really good. Reading Tara's review below, I agree about too much sugar. I cut it in half and it was still too much. I cut the recipe and only made 1 serving to test it, so I cooked them on a silpat lined baking sheet and only cooked them for 10-12 minutes and they were already drying out. Since the flavor is good, I will adjust a few things and try again. Definitely salt these on your plate!
