Southern Succotash

OK, we have to admit it. We’re old enough to remember the famous Sylvester the Cat and Daffy Duck line, “Suffering succotash!” Maybe the similarity of “southern succotash” and Daffy’s line had a subliminal influence on us, but more likely, we just like succotash! And this recipe is a jazzed up, flavorful version of the  awful school cafeteria horror of cold lima beans and corn.

Succotash supposedly comes from a phrase in the language of the Narragansett tribe which means “boiled corn kernels.” We like this Rachael Ray version on Food Network. This recipe was still judged a little bland by some of our guests; adding some chopped basil at the end helped.
