Doc Martin Lima Beans...?

CindyJ | Aug 21, 2008 05:51 PM

I must admit, when it comes to lima beans, I know absolutely nothing. I can't recall having ever cooked them; they've always seemed so bland and uninteresting that I've never even explored their potential.

But the local produce farm has a sign outside announcing that Doc Martin Lima Beans are in, and I'm wondering why the announcement? And last night, while dining at a local bistro, I noticed that Doc Martins were a featured ingredient in a dish called "Succotash 'Cannelloni'". So now I'm curious -- is there something special about these beans that I ought to know about? What's the deal with these lima beans? Should I try them? And how should I prepare them if I do buy them? Please -- educate me. Thanks.
