This lima bean recipe is from the Michigan Consolidated Gas company. To promote cooking with gas, the company regularly sent recipes with bills. This green vegetable trio would be at home on today’s table – though you might want to add red pepper flakes to spice it up.
This week, check back each day as I share the recipes for Thanksgiving, 1954 from Michigan Consolidated Gas Company:
- Roast Turkey with Almond Celery Stuffing
- Turkey Pompons

- Green Vegetable Trio
- Pumpkin Mince Pie
