Lima Beans with Ham

October 7, 2012

Lima Beans with Ham is an Allred family tradition that we continued this year.  Every conference weekend (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) my mother-in-law, Anona, would make Lima Bean with Ham.  This is one of Ken’s favorites.

1 – 16 oz. bag of small lima beans

Place dry beans in a crock pot (turned off) and cover with water.  Soak beans overnight, or at least 8 – 12 hours.  Make sure there is enough water to allow for the beans to triple in size.

2 ham hocks

2 tsp. onion salt

2 tsp. seasoned salt

1 tsp. pepper

1 T. garlic granules

1 tsp. non-salt seasoning

In the morning, add the ham hocks and seasonings  to the beans.

Cook on high for about 5-6 hours.
