1/4 cup chopped onion
1 pound dried butter beans - soaked overnight (mature lima beans)
1 garlic clove - minced
1/8 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt


Boil the turkey and onion in 1 quart of water for 45 minutes.


Place the beans, garlic, pepper, bay leaf, and thyme in the water and cook for 1 hour or until the beans are tender. Add the salt in the final 15 minutes of cooking to prevent the beans from becoming tough.
