Giant Peruvian Lima Beans
Giant Peruvian Lima Beans are large, flat, yellowish-white beans, about 1-inch long. They have a savory flavor and creamy, meaty texture when cooked.
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.
