Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Rinse and soak Lima Beans in cold water overnight. They will swell a little so use plenty of water. I usually soak them for at least 12 hours even though the directions usually say around 8 hours.

  2. Drain the following morning and replace with fresh water. Be careful not to toss the beans too much as the husk will start coming off.

  3. Wash off the Ham Hocks and place in crock pot.

  4. Fill the crock pot with water, covering the Ham Hocks.

  5. Cut the onion in half and chop coarsely.

  6. Add onion to the pot.

  7. Add salt.

  8. Cook on high for at least 3 hours.

  9. Add juice from Tomatoes Crush Tomatoes in the can and then add to pot Add Black Pepper Cook for another hour Drain the Lima Beans and add to the pot Add can of Tomato Sauce Coarsely chop the remainder of the onion and add to the pot.

  10. Continue cooking for at least 2 more hours Turn the pot to low and go at least 2 more hours Check to see if the beans are cooked completely with no crunchiness. If so, they are done.

  11. Best with fried corn bread, freshly sliced tomato and onion.

  12. If serving to friends, serve on a Friday or Saturday and advise to keep extra underwear on hand for a day or two (in case of accidents).

  13. If serving to someone you don't like, serve on Sundays, offer extra helpings, and forget to mention the underwear.

  14. Little boys will love this meal when told the after effects.

  15. Ventilate home well for the next two days.

  16. Enjoy
