This is one of my favorite side dishes of all time! It works well in a slow cooker, too.

Absolutely delicious! I think this recipe definitely needs some well deserved attention. I ended up keeping them in the crock pot on low for 8 hours, because I didn't read ahead and planned on making it while I was at work. There was the perfect blend of sweet from the brown sugar and sour from the vinegar. I was a bit worried about the lima beans, but they ended up turning out as a creamy delicious bean. I paired it with coleslaw and hot dogs and the guys loved it. These will definitely be made again in our house! Thanks for sharing!

I've made a nearly-identical version of this since the 70's and I love it! Everyone seems to. My version doesn't have kidney beans and only calls for 10 slices of bacon. It's still the same...thanks for reminding me of this favorite!
