Well Butter My Beans And Let's Chow Down

West Texas Canned Lima Beans

Lima Beans also known as butter beans because of their buttery texture are an excellent source of fiber and protein 


Lima beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber, as are most other legumes. In addition to lowering cholesterol, lima beans' high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. When combined with whole grains such as rice, lima beans provide virtually fat-free high quality protein. You may already be familiar with beans' fiber and protein, but this is far from all lima beans have to offer.

Lima beans can be used in a number of different recipes such as wild pork chops, bell peppers and seasonings of your choice. Also goes great with venison or beef. With canned lima beans you get the thickness of the juice as you would if heating them the second day.

When we can ours we add our seasoning, onions and either ham, neck bones or ox tail for a quick ready to eat meal.
