Directions

  1. Soak the beans in the water overnight. The next morning, take the hull off beans. Place beans in a saucepan and add water to cover. Do not add seasoning. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and cook until beans are very tender, about 1 hour. Drain; when they have cooled slightly, mash beans.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Combine sugar, flour, butter, vanilla, eggs, and salt. Mix well. Stir in mashed beans; add cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cream.
  4. Pour into a pie shell. Bake until a knife inserted near the center of the pie comes out clean, 30 to 45 minutes. Allow to cool completely before serving. Store pie in refrigerator.

I was shocked at how delicious this was! We happened to have some canned butter beans in the pantry, so I decided to try this, and it was a huge hit! What a surprisingly great dessert!

I made this with canned butter beans, which were very easy to hull (rinse them with water to speed up the process). The first time I made this, I had no cloves on hand, and substituted ginger. More recently, I tried this with a fruit pectin substitute for the butter, for a low-fat version. Both modifications have come out wonderfully.

This was an "ok" tasting pie. For some reason I think mine was a bit grainy. Almost reminded me of a buttermilk chess pie, but with a grainy texture. I haven't really decided if I like it or not, but it is somewhat healthy..you know, with the beans and all.
