Christmas Lima Beans

Accounts of the Christmas Lima Bean's use in gastronomy date back to the 1840s in the American Southwest, and they became particularly popular around the turn of the 20th century. Their rich, chestnutty flavor and meaty texture make them a delicious addition to soups and stews and a hearty accompaniment to grilled fish or vegetables.
