Made your recipe as written & had a great tasting soup! I can't remember the last time I used lima beans in anything, but in this soup, combined with the other beans & the ham, they were sonderful, & the recipe is a nice addition to my soup makings! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed as part of my And-a TWO theme in My-3-Chefs]
