As is well documented, I am very fond of the big limas at Chara.

I've eaten them, written about them, longed for them …and now, with Joe Kreml, Patrick Rollens and the Village of Oak Park, we've done a video about the big lima beans at Chara. You really should eat them.

I'm a Greek American and gave Chara a try on your recommendation. The fasolia gigantes were waaaay more cinnamon-y than they should have been. You should try the ones at the Greek Islands...they know how to do them right.
