 Lima Beans
 Dried beans are an excellent source of protien and other nutrients.
 However, many bean recipies I have ask for some type of meat product to
 be cooked with the beans. One of my favorite dried beans is the large
 dried lima beans. I modified the original receipe and, I believe, have
 recreated the original flavor with no fat.
 1		package of dried lima beans, soaked overnight
 1		medium onion, chopped
 1		large carrot diced
 1/4 to 1/2 tsp 	liquid smoke
 Put all ingredients except liquid smoke in a crockpot and add enough
 water to cover the beans by about 1/2 inch. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours
 (the actual time doesn't make a lot of difference). Just before serving,
 add the liquid smoke (I find if I add it in the beginning the flavor
 cooks out). Add additional water to adjust thickness of the broth.
 Serve with homemade ff cornbread. Enjoy!
