I tasted this for the first time at a Havurah cover dish supper. It was my favorite for the evening. I cooked it at home a few weeks later and I still think it is really fabulous. Edgar
From Phyllis Reicher, but remembered by Jon and Phil Holstein from their mom Jane. Even people who hate lima beans like this dish!!
