Lima Beans With Sausage

default recipe image

This is a simple recipe with roots back to the U.S. Southern States.  Use your smoky sausage of choice but we like Andouille sausage.  Serve with sauteed greens and a tall glass of sweet iced tea.

We use fresh, shelled limas but you could prepare and cook dried lima beans then continue with the recipe.  This recipe could be done in a slow cooker too.
