"This is the original recipe for fresh beans .I'm using dry big Limas. You could do this recipe in the crockpot This has no meat in it .and southerners still make them this way Butter beans should be full grown, but tender. Hull them, rinse and boil them tender, in clear water, with a little salt. Thicken the soup with butter, flour, pepper and cream, and serve it up with crackers or toasts.​"
