Lima Beans Solar Style

Beans, Beans, Beans!  We love them.  They are easy to make, taste good, and are so good for you.  This week I made Lima Beans.  I put about 2 cups of rinsed Lima beans in the pot.  I do not usually soak my beans.  The beans have plenty of time to soak and plump up with the slow cooking method.  I also added some chopped bacon for flavor.  Sometimes I add ham.  No particular amount — just however much you have and how much you want in the beans.  Then I added enough water to cover the beans, plus extra water to allow for the beans to “soak & plump up.”   I let the beans simmer in the solar oven all afternoon — about 4 hours, maybe a little longer.  Yummy, Hot, Delicious Beans!
