Pressure Cooker Peas or Butter Beans

Pressure Cooker Peas or Butter Beans created by Carol C.

This is my recipe for cooking frozen peas or butter beans (Lima beans) in the pressure cooker. We put up purplehulls, crowders and butter beans from our spring garden (yes, we are Southerners), but this recipe works with any frozen legumes, either home frozen or store bought.

    Thank you for the information. My mother in law used to cook these. I had forgotten how long to cook them. She also added about a tap of sugar.
