Bess's Best Butter Beans
65 mins (prep 5, cooking 60)
7 ingredients

FIXED AFTER 3-STAR REVIEW. This recipe falls under the category: Crowd Pleaser. Two VERY crucial ingredients distinguish it from the rest of the pack - molasses and sour cream (or yogurt) - so you won't want to forget to add them. It's adapted from an award-winning Midwestern (U.S.) cookbook "Hollyhocks and Radishes" and is great for picnics, barbecues and potlucks (just double the recipe). You can use fava (broad) beans as well as butter (lima) beans (I prefer fava myself). This can also be made a day or two ahead and reheated.
