Our son, Sawyer asked me what Succotash was this week and I had to tell him I wasn't really sure. He saw a gopher on a Winnie-the-Pooh movie that had it in it's lunch box. Then he heard someone exclaim "Suffering Succotash!". We needed to investigate this and put an answer to his burning question. We learned that this is a very Southern side dish that is easy to prepare, even for this very New England family.

We did an internet search and found this Succotash recipe on the Food Network.

1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
2 cups frozen or canned corn, drained
2 cups frozen lima beans
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper
Directions: In a saucepan, heat butter and cook red pepper until tender about 1 minute. Stir in corn, lima beans and water. Cover and bring to a simmer. Cook for 3 minutes. Stir in butter and season to taste.I had used canned lima beans but I think the frozen would have been a brighter and more pleasing green color. The taste was wonderful! David and I gave it 5 spoons. The boys, well.............let's just say they picked every single lima bean out! We're definately going to make this often. We are undeterred by the boys. :)

  4. LOVE Succotash, though I have to admit up until about 6 weeks ago I didn't know what it was (and I've lived in Atlanta for 8 years now!). I had it at a restuarant and fell in love. Thanks for the recipe. I will make it and if I blog about it I'll link back to you :)

  5. Haha, and my daughter eats lima beans like candy so we'll LOVE this! Thanks again :)

  6. As a fan of Sylester the cat, I have said "Suffering Succatash" yet never had succatash. Looks pretty interesting though I would be picking out the lima beans, as well.
