1C smoked turkey breast, diced
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp red pepper, crushed

1. Sort and wash beans; place in a Dutch oven. Cover with water to 2 inches above beans; bring to a boil, and cook 20 minutes. Remove from heat; drain beans.
2. Preheat oven to 375°F.
3. Heat oil in pan over medium-low heat. Add onion; sauté 10 minutes. Add beans, broth, and the next 5 ingredients; bring to a boil. Cover and bake at 375°F for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Stir in collards, vinegar, and tomatoes. Cover and bake an additional 1 hour or until beans are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in salt and pepper. Discard bay leaf. Garnish with thyme sprigs, if desired.

Cooking Instructions

1. Presoak Lima beans. Have four cups of water for every one cup of beans. Soak in a bowl overnight, or for 12 hours. Ensure there is enough room in the bowl for the beans to expand.
2. Drain the beans.
3. Put the beans into a saucepan with 2-3 cups of water.
4. Bring to the boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for 1 hour or until they are at a desired, tender texture.


Lima beans are named after Lima, Peru, where they were first known to be cultivated. They come in bush and pole varieties. They are sometimes referred to as 'butter beans.' The beans are flat and kidney-shaped.
