Recipe Notes

We lived of a farm and worked in the fields as kids. In order to feed a bunch of growing children, my Mom would cook lima beans and cornbread at least once a week, but seldom had ham. I found a much tastier way to cook them and it's faster and a one dish meal. Cooked this way, they are not as strong or as gassy. This brings comfort and thoughts of the olden days to me..
