Baby lima beans are a smaller, thin-skinned, milder flavored variety; they are not the same as the immature large lima beans. Baby lima beans are also less starchy than the larger "Fordhook" or "Butter" variety. The # 10 can holds approximately 5.5 pounds/12 cups of baby lima beans.
Be prepared and have your food storage on hand!
Each bucket of dry beans is sealed with oxygen absorbers. Each bucket has a tear tab lid which contains a rubber gasket. Our plastic food grade buckets may be reused several times. If stored in a cool, dry place, beans should last 10+ years. In an emergency situation, boiling the beans in water for 20 minutes will kill any bacteria and will still give you some nutrition.
