 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb Fresh or dry Lima beans*
  • *(small ones are best)
  • 3 c Fresh corn cut from cob
  • 4 Wild onions or pearl onions
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 tb Melted bacon fat
  • 2 Pieces smoked ham hock
  • 3 qt Water


Soak beans, if using dry ones, for 3-4 hours. Bring the water to a boil
then add the beans. Cook at a moderate boil for 10 minutes then add the
corn, ham hocks, salt & pepper, and onions. Reduce heat and cook for 1 hour
on a low heat. Got this one from a friend from grad school. He is a
cultural anthropologist who also happens to be a Cherokee Amerindian. His
passion is cooking and this is a recipe that he assures me is genuinely
ethnic to his people in North Carolina. The changes from the items *'d are
his not mine. The measurements have been converted for us as well. He
claims we would like to measure out a hand- ful of this and a small pinch
of that. Enjoy!
