NOTES : While succotash for most Americans means a mixture of corn and lima
beans, for many African-Americans, it's a mixture of okra, corn, and
tomatoes. The dish turns up on tables from Dallas to Detroit, Natchez to
New York. It can be prepared in summer from fresh vegetables and in winter
from frozen or preserved ones.
