From toh "Simple & Delicious" magazine. I used Splenda Brown Sugar Blend for the brown sugar. It was a little sweeter than I liked, so next time I will cut back on the sugar and vinegar. It's a good dish to serve to a crowd. I added some smoked sausage on top of the beans an hour before it was done.

The lost is found!!! This was the recipe I was given many years ago at a potluck and lost when I moved. These are the best beans ever. I have a batch cooking right now for a potluck and they are wonderful. The only thing I substituted was pinto beans for the lima beans--personal preferance. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.
