SUFFERIN’ SUCCOTASH



Ingredients:
  • ¼ pound sliced bacon
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen baby lima beans, thawed
  • 1 large fresh Jalapeño pepper, finely chopped
  • ¾ pound cherry tomatoes (1 pint), halved
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Instructions:
Cook bacon in a large skillet over moderate heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels, leaving fat in skillet.

Add onion to skillet and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened. Add garlic and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in corn, jalapeno, lima beans, and tomatoes and sauté until vegetables are tender, about 7 minutes. Stir in vinegar, basil, salt, and pepper, and adjust seasonings to taste. Serve succotash with bacon crumbled over the top.
I at one time had her email address. I invited her to join DC. It never happened. Poor girl doesn't know what she's missing.

Well, that's too bad. Here she could be herself and we would encourage that! We are rather silly at times.

Silly! Who's silly. Why, one day I was told to be sober in all things. That was 335 years ago. I haven't been silly, not one time since then. I took a job as court jester during the time of Henry the Eighth. I was told that if I wasn't silly enough, I would be beheaded. I've been walking around headless ever since.

What ever happened to that that "Tall Tales" thread we had a few years back. I don't recall anyone showing much interest. That's sad. We could also use a "Fractured Fairy Tales" thread, or maybe more in line with this sight, a "Fractured Old Wive's Tales" thread.

Did I ever tell you 'bout the time I nearly went over Niagara Falls?

I think that you are too staid to be silly, don't even try.

How do we know she isn't here? She could be using an assumed name, like PF does, or Chief, laughing at us.

I was quoting Sir-Loin-Of-Beef. The recipe is his. The only valuable thing I have added to this thread is that there are many beans that can not be eaten raw. Some of them can even kill you.

A succotash recipe from my antique, out of print cookbook find I altered this recipe to what I had on hand. I also believe that it can be "veganised". It is VERY important that you buy the green lima beans from the frozen vegetable section. Otherwise you won't get the same result and a much inferior dish. The recipe is meant for fresh vegetables but I have yet to find fresh green lima beans. Lima Bean And Corn Succotash 2 cups lima beans (I used two packages frozen green lima beans) 1 T sugar 1 t pepper (I used black) 3 T butter (a vegan substitute can be made here) 3 cups raw corn kernels (about two drained cans or two regular frozen packs) I used canned bc that's what I had available. I think fresh cut or frozen would be tastier. 1 t salt (I prefer sea salt) 1/4 c milk or cream (I used 2% milk bc that's what I had on hand but next time I'll use whole milk). A vegan substitute can be made here 1 t grated onion or onion juice. I used dry onion powder. NOT onion salt. Combine ingredients in a sauce pan. Let simmer slowly 20 minutes and serve. Yields six servings as a side dish but I think it's good enough for a main dish. 3 stars 1 reviews
