These sound great. The two recipes I have are the following:

From the Charleston Receipts cookbook, dated 1950.

1/2 cup sieva or butter beans
1/2 cup raw corn
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Boil sieva beans in salted water until almost done, add tender raw corn, cut from cob, and cook until both are tender. Drain. Add butter, seasoning and serve. Serves 4

The second recipe is from a modern cookbook called More White Trash Cooking.

3 cups okra
1/3 pound bacon
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped bell pepper
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
2 cups tomatoes, chopped
1 cup corn
Salt to taste

Boil and drain your okra to get the slime off. In a large skillet, brown the bacon. Add the onion, pepper and garlic. Now mix in the okra and stir. Next, throw in the tomatoes, corn and salt. Succotash should simmer on low for about an hour.

Phinz, I have Charleston Receipts and also the original White Trash Cooking! They appeared during my interest in southern cooking.

I have White Trash Cooking, More White Trash Cooking and Swamp Cooking. I love them! I used to have about 4-5 different copies of Charleston Receipts but I gave up all my extras and kept my original one.

I also have my great-grandmother's 1950s copy of Better Homes & Gardens New Cook Book. The recipe in it for winter succotash says the following:

1 1/2 c canned whole kernel corn
1 1/2 c canned lima beans
2 tbs butter or margarine
salt and pepper
1/2 cup cream or top milk

Drain vegetables; add remaining ingredients and heat in double boiler. Makes 6 servings.

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.
It's a long time since you posted this but I found it again while rooting for another thread. Just a question.

I can't find Lima beans over here. Could I use frozen baby broad beans? They look similar to the limas on Wikipaedia. (Sorry, broad beans = fava beans - shades of Hannibal Lecter).

I have to feed my vegan friends soon.

Yes, fresh Fava Beans will work...along with a nice Chianti.

I would think fava beans would be just fine.
