Updated: Dec 31, 2023


speckled butterbeans


































I love my speckled butter beans (a.k.a. speckled lima beans). But, you can’t get these just everywhere. In fact, try to find a speckled butter bean in Los Angeles! So, when my Aunt Betty sent me a package of dried speckled butter beans, I was thrilled! I went right to my grocer and had him order them. I told him I’d buy the whole case! So, if your grocer doesn’t carry them, the company that puts them out are China Doll of Mobile, Alabama.
