Kale, lemons and of course, lima beans were the dominant flavors Saturday at the Encinitas Lima Bean Cookoff and Faire, put on by the San Dieguito Heritage Museum off Quail Gardens Drive.
I helped with the judging, sampling everything lima-beanish from Mini Sweet Pepper Poppers to Hawaiian Lima BBQ Beans to Lima-Kale Gratin and Cinnabean Rolls. (Winning recipes in an upcoming post.)
It was a lot of fun, with some very nice people who enjoyed the afternoon, the exhibits, the bake sale and plant sale and silent auction, and the live music, too. Come out and visit the museum any time, but don’t forget to mark your calendars for next year’s Festival in September!
