Summertime Treat!

1)Cook 2-3 cups lima beans. They need to be big ones. Think fordhook or giant calico.

2) Drain the beans thoroughly.

3) Allow the beans to cool. You can combine this with step two by cooling the beans in a colander.

4) Spread beans in a single layer on a paper towel.

5) Gently inject each bean with vodka. If you're patient, you should be able to get an eighth to a quarter teaspoon of vodka into each bean. Be environmentally responsible: use an industrial reusable syringe!

6) Halve a medium sized round watermelon. Hollow out one half of the melon, reserving the fruit and leaving about a half-inch layer of flesh on the rind. Liberally douse this layer with vodka.

7) Coarsely chop one cup of the reserved fruit and mix with the beans. Serve in the hollowed out melon half. Enjoy!
