Look, you probably thought kissing was icky when you were a kid, too, so grow up. Alas, too many of us meet the lima out of a can or the freezer, and it’s one legume that needs to be fresh to avoid that mealy mushiness that turns us off. A fresh lima bean can’t be beat for “green is the flavor of summer” yumminess. (Something has to step in for fava beans’ “green is the flavor of spring” yumminess.) You can get particularly delicious ones from McGrath Farms at the Farmers Market. Pop them from their pods, saute in butter, add some shallot, and enjoy.
