A simple succotash prepared with kidney instead of lima beans

Succotash (from Narragansett sohquttahhash, “broken corn kernels” is a vegetable dish consisting primarily of sweet corn with lima beans or other shell beans.

Other ingredients may be added such as onions, potatoes, turnips, tomatoes, bell peppers, corned beef, salt pork, or okra.

Combining a grain with a legume provides a dish that is high in all essential amino acids.

Succotash has a long history. The dish was introduced as a stew to North American colonists in the 17th century by indigenous peoples. Composed of ingredients unknown in Europe at the time, it gradually became a standard meal in the cuisine of New England and is a traditional dish of many Thanksgiving celebrations in the region, as well as in Pennsylvania and other states.

Because of the relatively inexpensive and more readily available ingredients, the dish was popular during the Great Depression in the United States.[citation needed] It was sometimes cooked in a casserole form, often with a light pie crust on top as in a traditional pot pie.

Sweet corn (a form of maize), American beans, tomatoes, and peppers are New World foods.

Catherine Beecher’s 19th-century recipe includes beans boiled with corn cobs from which the kernels have been removed. The kernels are added later, after the beans have boiled for several hours. The corn cobs are removed and the finished stew, in proportions of 2 parts corn to 1 part beans, is thickened with flour.

Henry Ward Beecher’s recipe, published in an 1846 issue of Western Farmer and Gardner, adds salt pork, which he says is “an essential part of the affair.”

In some parts of the American South, any mixture of vegetables prepared with lima beans and topped with lard or butter is called succotash.
