Description

WHAT ARE THEY

Butter beans are a vastly under-appreciated legume that are high fiber and really compliment whatever they’re added to well. Butter bean is the more Southern-American name for them, which sells far better than lima bean, that, like mimes, got a bad rep over the decades as the vegetable kids hate in Hollywood.

EXPERIENCE

Creamy and delicate beans with a buttery taste, pre-made Bush’s are very simply prepared, with dextrose  a light sweetening with easy-to-digest glucose, as its only noteworthy additive that’s pretty inoffensive. Some of our pantry has to be non-refrigerated, so canned beans are a valuable item to stock because of their great range in so many foods.

TRADITIONAL USES

  • Pan-fried
  • Sauteed with bacon or ham
  • Tomato and garlic
  • With mint and lemon

MY TAKE

Lots of companies out there make butter beans. Bush’s, routinely, produces a higher grade product, both in the choice of their beans, and their simple, solid preparation. The quality stands out, making this one of my few five-diamond award winners.
