       Title: WES 'N' KATHY'S AUTHENTIC ORIGINAL LIMA BEAN 
  Categories: Soups, Vegetables
       Yield: 6 servings
  
      12 oz Dried (large) lima beans or
            -butterbeans
       1    Med. onion (chopped)
       2    Ribs celery, including tops
       1 lg Carrot (diced)
       4 c  Ham stock
     1/4 lb Diced ham
       2 c  Water
       1    Chili pepin (crushed)
       2    Cloves garlic (minced)
  
   We invented this yesterday, and are still munching on
   it.  I wanted a plain plate of butterbeans for my
   birthday, but Kathy can never do anything 1/2 way.
   
   Salt & black pepper to taste
   
   Place all ingredients except salt and pepper in a pot.
   Bring to a boil, reduce heat.  Cover pot and simmer
   until beans are VERY tender (3 to 4 hours).  Salt &
   pepper to taste.  Serve this with bread & butter,
   garlic bread, or dinner rolls.  Makes a complete meal.
   Enjoy!
