I was born and raised in the south, and we eat a lot of beans. Here is a easy and basic lima bean recipe. Weve been doing it this way for years. You can use ham hocks, hambones, smoked bacon or smoked sausage for the pork flavor in this dish. Also fresh, frozen or even canned beans can be used-they just wont have to cook as long.
