Giant Peruvian Lima Beans / 10 lb.
Giant Peruvian Lima Beans (Phaseolus lunatus) are named for Lima, the Peruvian city where 16th-century Spanish explorers first encountered them. They are large, flat, yellowish-white beans about 1 inch in length, and are often called "Madagascar," "curry" or "lab" beans. Native to the mountainous regions of Northern Peru where they have been cultivated since at least 5,000 B.C., the Giant Peruvian Lima Bean has a savory flavor and creamy, meaty texture.
Carefully sort beans and rinse thoroughly. Soak beans overnight. Drain and place in large pot. Add fresh water to cover beans by 3 inches. Bring water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until tender, approximately 2 hours.
