These are the king of lima beans. Fordhook lima beans are plump with a buttery texture and are absolutely delicious. The lima beans are sautéed with onions, cilantro, and garlic in a rich tomato stew. This is one of my favorite dishes. It’s ideal to take to a barbecue, picnic, or potluck. Since it is served at room temperature, you can platter it in advance.
