NH dave, Butterbeans are a small, tender version of Lima beans, which tend to be tough and tasteless. Very hard to find here in Canada, but sometimes found frozen in small packages (about enough for two bowls).
Fresh Okra has come here since we have received immigrants from the Middle East, but, having lived in the south, we lament the scarcity of butterbeans.
