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!

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!

I am not rating this because I took some considerable liberties. I did enjoy it a lot and wanted to let others know. I cut the amount of sugar in half because I was almost certain the full amount would have been too sweet for me. I used a pound of limas, soaked them over night (a four hour soak might not be enough) and then I cooked them in the crockpot all day. I did put them in a 13X9 and bake for an hour, but I wish I had put them in a smaller baking dish and baked for a little less time because they dried out too much and lost their creaminess. Even with that being said, this was really good and I will certainly try again.
