Sufferin Succotash

I always thought the phrase "Sufferin' Succotash" said repeatedly by Sylvester the cat was just something made up by Warner Bros. Not until I hit 11 did I learn that succotash was a vegetable dish. Here's an easy recipe for making it.


  • 2 Cups fresh or frozen baby lima beans

  • 2 Cups fresh or frozen corn kernels

  • 1 Cup half-and-half

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil

  • 3/4 Tsp. salt

  • 3 Tbsp. fresh chopped chives

In a large saucepan, bring lima beans, corn, half-and-half, butter and salt to a boil over high heat.

When mix comes to boil, reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer until tender (about 10 to 12 minutes).

Remove from heat, stir in chives and serve.
