“I searched your website for the simple lima bean recipe that my mom used to make and the one that is served by many restaurants here in the south as a side dish. I couldn't find one, so I submitted my own. This is an easy, basic lima bean dish with ham, onion, and seasonings. Served over Mexican cornbread, it makes a delicious hearty meal. You can also do this on the stovetop. Just follow the directions on the back of the lima bean bag and add the seasonings. Slow cooker time is about 7 hours. Add a side salad for a complete meal.” - by mammak

Bad news ~ I did high for the first 3 hours, added ..." See morethe cajun seasoning and pepper and then to low for 4 hours. The beans were still too hard at the end of the 4 hours on low.
