1 lb. dry lima beans
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons butter
4 strips bacon
salt and pepper
1 dozen marshmallows

Soak the lima beans in cold water for 5-6 hours. Drain off this water and add boiling water to cover. Cook on a low flame for half an hour or until tender.

Melt the butter and add the sugar, then the seasoning. Turn the tender beans into a greased casserole, pour over the butter and seasoning. Lay the strips of bacon on the top. Bake with the cover on for about one hour in a warm oven (350ºF), add water if necessary. Remove the cover and put the marshmallows on top of the bacon. Brown under the broiler flame.

Serve in the casserole.
