To a great extent, succotash was another of the many gifts to the table from Native Americans. Corn, beans and meat are a tasty and nourishing combination, whatever the type of bean or meat. In this recipe the real flavor play is brought forward by the addition of fresh herbs. After all, corn and beans have no real pronounced flavors of their own. I get nothing but clean plates when I have this on the menu, and find that offering it during the dreary days of mid-Winter brighten spirits and boosts conversation. Here I have modified a recipe for which I thank JoAnne Weatherly and the test kitchen pros at Southern Living, and you may also tweak my version to suit your guests.
