    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    When my DH and I got married he requested Creamed Lima Beans. I had heard of Creamed Corn before but never limas. I soon found out it was a dish his great aunt prepared for him regularly so I dutifully learned to fix it too. She also used this sauce for creamed peas or carrots.

      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
