These are so delicious you will DANCE AROUND THE TABLE!!! A good southern vegetable dish that goes well with chicken, pork or beef. My family always had a big garden and grew butter beans. We would sit on the back porch and shell beans to put into the freezer. We tried to pick the tinest beans because of their flavor. Now, with a busy life a purchased bag of these beans not only bring back memories, but are popular in our every day meals. Purchase the bag that states "tiny" or "baby" lima beans. They make a pretty dish when having guests. The ham and bacon drippings will provide some saltiness; therefore, use the small amount of salt and give it a taste test.
