    2       lb           Fresh or dry Lima beans*
                         *(small ones are best)
    3       c            Fresh corn cut from cob
    4                    Wild onions or pearl onions
                         Salt to taste
                         Pepper to taste
    2       tb           Melted bacon fat
    2                    Pieces smoked ham hock
    3       qt           Water
   Soak beans, if using dry ones, for 3-4 hours. Bring the water to a boil
   then add the beans. Cook at a moderate boil for 10 minutes then add the
   corn, ham hocks, salt & pepper, and onions. Reduce heat and cook for 1 hour
   on a low heat. Got this one from a friend from grad school. He is a
   cultural anthropologist who also happens to be a Cherokee Amerindian. His
   passion is cooking and this is a recipe that he assures me is genuinely
   ethnic to his people in North Carolina. The changes from the items *'d are
   his not mine. The measurements have been converted for us as well. He
   claims we would like to measure out a hand- ful of this and a small pinch
   of that. Enjoy!
