    Suggested uses

  • While great in the traditional succotash, these creamy Giant Peruvian Lima Beans are especially delicious sautéed in olive oil with garlic and herbs

  • Can be peeled and made into a smooth, creamy puree

  • Great for stewing, as they hold their shape well when cooked

  • Basic prep

    Carefully sort beans and rinse thoroughly. Soak beans overnight. Drain and place in large pot. Add fresh water to cover beans by 3 inches. Bring water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until tender, approximately 2 hours.

    Storage & handling

    Store in a dry, cool place.

    Classic recipe

    Spicy Peruvian Succotash

    Although typically made with fresh green lima beans, succotash is equally delicious with our dried Giant Peruvian Lima Beans. Bacon and sautéed onion lend richness and depth, while fresh corn, sherry vinegar, tomatoes and herbs offer sweet, fresh and tangy notes. Serve with grilled chicken or fish for a complete meal.
