PRODUCT INFO

Actually a dwarf variety of the lima bean, baby butter beans (Phaseolus Lunatus) are flat, ½” long white beans with a creamy texture and sweet flavor. They’re also known as sieva beans, baby lima beans & baby butter lima beans.

STORAGE

Dried baby butter beans are best stored in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.

RECIPES & TIPS

Baby butter lima beans are delicious in bean salads, pasta & bean salads, soups, succotash & other bean side dishes.

Basic Cooking Technique:

Dry baby butter beans should be soaked overnight and rinsed prior to cooking.  

 

To cook them on the stovetop, bring them (in a pot of water) to a boil for about three minutes, then reduce the heat to a simmer.  Cover the pot, and let them simmer until tender.  One cup of dry baby butter beans yields about 3 cups of cooked beans.
