soaking beans by dev trash (2.00 / 0) #1 Sun Jan 20, 2013 at 05:50:27 PM EST
When I do them in the crock I never soak, just let them cook for 8-9 hours.  They seem to turn out okay.

Here's how I cook lima beans:
  1. Open Package
  2. Dump in trash can
  3. eat something that is actually food 

I don't understand the lima bean hate by toxicfur (2.00 / 0) #3 Mon Jan 21, 2013 at 09:15:31 AM EST
You aren't the first person who has looked askance at my love for lima beans (I once cooked a Southern fried chicken feast for ana's family -- his brother and SiL told the kids the lima beans were a kind of eda mame so they'd eat them).

Granted, I far prefer them fresh -- I grew up eating them out of my grandfather's garden, and they were one of my very favorite vegetables. Since I can't get them fresh around here, the frozen ones are a good substitute. The dried ones are fine, but not quite the same.
The amount of suck that you can put up with can be mind-boggling, but it only really hits you when it then ceases to suck. -- Kellnerin

I don't get it either by mmangino (4.00 / 1) #4 Mon Jan 21, 2013 at 09:49:18 AM EST
I like edamame, so it's not like it's a green vegetable thing. There's just something off putting about the texture of lima beans. They always seem a little slimy. I don't think it's a taste thing either, solely texture. My kids love them though. Tommy ate half a bag of frozen limas in one sitting once.

could be a quality thing by gzt (2.00 / 0) #5 Mon Jan 21, 2013 at 02:21:02 PM EST
if done wrong, it's easy to turn them into an unpalatable mush. if you've had that too many times, you're never going to change your mind, all you can remember when you start eating them is the mush. It's like how if somebody gets sick after eating a hamburger or something sometimes they have problems eating hamburgers anymore. That's my armchair speculation.
