One of the recipes I’ve been thinking about lately is what my grandma used to make pretty much every week during summer school vacation: Summer Succotash.
Her and my grandfather (I called him Papa) had a huge garden with just about every veggie you could think of. I spent summer days with them while my mama was at work and have so many wonderful memories in the kitchen and playing outside while they were in the garden.
One of the vegetable recipes I remember most (and have been craving!) is this succotash recipe. I remember it always having corn, baby lima beans, okra, tomatoes and onions.
If you eat is as a meal like I do, your serving sizes will be smaller than if you prepare it as a side dish. This recipe yields about 7 cups.
There’s still plenty of time to enjoy summer’s bounty!
