Initially from South and Central America, the lima bean, commonly called butter beans has adapted to live in many different climates around the world. Like many beans, raw butter beans are toxic (containing e.g. phytohaemagglutinin) if not boiled for at least 10 minutes.
Organic Butter Beans
Dried butter beans require soaking before they can be cooked. Soak the beans in cool water for a minimum of five hours and as long as eight hours or overnight. Ensure that the beans are fully submerged. The longer they soak, the softer and creamier they’ll be. Do not use the soaking liquid to cook the beans, as sugars — which produce gas when consumed — are released by the beans into the liquid.
