My husband and I are retired farmers. Our main crop was wheat, and we began growing beans when our son joined the operation. When our church cookbook was revised a couple years ago, this recipe was included among the favorites. —Georgia Hennings, Scottsbluff, Nebraska

"I think I first pulled this recipe from a magazine and then lost it, so I googled the ingredients and found the exact recipe. I made this for dinner tonight for my mom and myself. We both liked it. I usually end up changing something about a recipe, but I made this exactly as the recipe said to. We ate the beans on top of buttered rice. Yum yum!"

"I make almost the same recipe, only with butter beans and undrained pork and beans instead of the lima and garbanzo beans. We also use 3/4 cup sugar...and my results are always on the sweet side. I am glad to see that one of my favorite recipes is actually pretty healthy!"

"This dish has a lot of tang and zip. A little bit too much for our liking. More on the sour side of sweet and sour."
