Wow, is this delicious! Never thought I would love lima beams. I made this recipe using evaporated milk and then made a roux out of butter and flour and folded it into the beans. Leave a little of the bean water and pour in evaporated milk. Add the roux and blend. Add milk to desired consistency after roux and bean mixture thickens. The creaminess of the evaporated milk really gives a velvety taste. Add chives, or your favorite seasoning. Voila!<br/>Yum.

Almost like my grandmothers. The only thing I changed is I used Half and Half instead of milk. That's how she did it. I couldn't find a recipe any where for it. Thanks so much!

This was most unusual. I didn't think I liked it but it got better and better. Will definitely try again. Thank you! Margie

These were fabulous! My mom-in-law wanted to have them so I search for the recipe. I made tonight to try out and I loved them. I will make again soon for her. Thank you!
