    Love, love, love! So easy to throw together and so tasty! I used frozen limas because we don't like the consistency of canned. And like another reviewer, used 1/2 tbsp dijon and 1/2 tbsp prepared horseradish. I don't know if it was the horseradish or the vinegar, but these beans have an amazing tang that perfectly offsets the sweetness. Not too sweet, as I think it depends on the beans you're using. I used Bush's Boston Recipe beans. And cider vinegar, in case anyone is wondering. Thanks for sharing, Lynn - I understand why this is a family favorite of yours!

    I made these for an outing two weeks ago. Everyone enjoyed them. My recommendation is to use half as much brown sugar. Adding the full amount of brown sugar wwould be too sweet fo me. I did omit the mustard.

    This is great! No lima beans in cans or frozen here in Australia, so I used frozen corn - otherwise made as written. Served with a large baked potato and sour cream, yum! Thanks for posting Lavender Lynn

    I love beans, so I enjoyed this. I could not find canned lima beans though, so I used white beans. I also don't like bacon (strange, I know), so I left that out. Even without the bacon, the dish was well-flavored and savory. I doubled the serving portion and we had this as a main dish. [made & reviewed for PRMR]
