Lima beans are one of the largest beans available and have a creamy and tender interior, so much so that they are sometimes referred to as 'butter beans'. They are perfect for making creamy Butter Beans and Ham, or for marinating to add to salads.

Preparation Note

Soak beans 8 to 24 hours before cooking.

1 cups lima beans (soaked for 8 to 24 hours)
½ teaspoons kosher salt
1 bay leaves
