Baby Butter Beans

Baby Butter Lima Beans are a dwarf variety of lima bean, about 1/2 inch long, with a thin, yellowish-white skin and a creamy texture. Sometimes called "sieva beans," these tasty little beans are a popular ingredient in Southern cooking, especially the classic succotash.

  • In addition to being rich in fiber, lima beans are an excellent source of molybdenum, a trace mineral that can help those who are sensitive to sulfite preservatives in food and wine

  • Lima beans must be cooked before eating, as they contain a toxin that is neutralized by cooking
