Baked Baby Lima Beans

These tiny limas are most delicious when baked like the ordinary navy bean.


  • 1/2 pound of lima beans
  • 1 cup of stewed tomatoes
  • 1 onion, minced fine
  • 1 green pepper, minced fine
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of paprika
  • 1/2 cup of salad oil
  • 4 tablespoons of syrup


Wash beans well and then look over carefully and discard all bruised or damaged ones. Soak overnight in cold water.

In the morning wash again and then place in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and then turn into a colander and let the cold water run on them. Place in a saucepan and cover with boiling water and cook for twenty minutes.

Turn into a baking dish and add tomatoes, onion, green pepper, salt, paprika, salad oil, and syrup. Add sufficient water to cover beans one inch deep. Mix well and bake for two hours in a slow oven.
