Where to buy bulk lima beans?

It's ages since I've seen them, even canned. TIA

hezwez, do you have a Bin Inn nearby? That's where I have seen (and bought) Lima Beans.

Hope that helps. :-))

Great thank you both so much. My husband has a yearning.

I love lima beans. Last saw them in the Bin Inn. What recipes do you have for lima beans.

Nearly all varieties of dried beans on earth can be bought from Bin Inn - they all come from China nowadays - and some are even called "organic".

I haven't a recipe Frances, can you suggest one? I was just going to soak, cook, caramelize some onions and cook in stock with chopped vegies and thicken so it's like a rich gravy type stew.

Mediterranean Vegetables: A Cook's ABC of Vegetables and Their Preparation has a great Greek recipe for Lima beans.

Hezwez - this is how I like lima beans. Smash them down just a little, fry in a little olive oil, add crushed garlic, parsley, s&p. Lemon rind and juice is nice added to them for a change. They are nice when they go slightly crispy.
Succotash is a lima bean recipe that sounds nice. I cook them and find it hard to stop eating as is. Havent had them for a while so must buy some more myself, they are delicious.
