    Bec's Note:

      This is only the second time I've made succotash (or lima beans for that matter), but this recipe ROCKS! I like it so much that I am going to go get more scallions so that I can make it again tomorrow. I did brown some bacon, drain the fat, then followed the recipe using the pan I cooked the bacon in, and topped the finished succotash with a small crumble of bacon. Thanks for a new favorite recipe, with a new favorite ingredient!
