This is a delicious and easy-to-make soup with a wonderful tang of vinegar. I soaked two cups of large lima beans overnight (actually for almost 18 hours). Everything cooked to a good tenderness and was already quite thick within 90 minutes. So I made the roux with 1 1/2 tablespoons of flour, 1/2 cup of milk and 1/4 cup of sour cream. That balance was perfect and kept the soup from getting too thick.
