Succotash - A recipe with a great name.
If using pork, cover pork with water, and parboil it; add beans; then add corn, sugar, butter, and pepper to taste. After corn is added, watch carefully to keep from scorching. Serve.
Note that lima beans that have not been cooked should be thoroughly boiled for at least 10 minutes to rid the beans of phytohemagglutinin, a toxin found in uncooked lima beans. Canned beans are safe to eat without cooking.
Notes, tips, and variationsEdit
A red bell pepper (chopped) can be added.
