Lima Bean Stew (Page 17)

(I do not like Lima beans but love this stew!)    Recipe courtesy of Phyllis Taylor
1 lb. white lima beans
2 bay leaves
1 lb. sausage
1 onion, diced
1 can of Campbell’s Golden Mushroom
3 T. ketchup
2 tsp. garlic powder (or more to taste)
1 c. boiled ham, chopped

Soak a 1 lb. bag of large white lima beans overnight in water, then rinse and drain. Cook lima beans in a pot of water with 2 bay leaves, until tender. Do not drain liquid. Set aside. In a large skillet fry 1 lb. (Bob Evan’s)  pork sausage with onion. Cool slightly and add to bean soup. Add mushroom soup and ketchup. Sprinkle in garlic powder. Simmer 1 hour. Remove bay leaves before eating!  Add ham. Yum.
Serve warm. Freezes well.
