Vegetarian Butter Beans


1 stick butter
1 pound lima beans
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
crusty bread and Cherry Pepper Hoagie Spread
for serving

Rinse and drain beans. 
Put butter in a pot. Pour the beans on top. 
Cover the beans with about a half-inch of water. 
Bring to a slow boil and reduce the heat to simmer. Do not let get to a full rolling boil. 
Cover the pot loosely. Check every 20 to 25 minutes and add more water just to cover the beans. 
After 1 to 1 1/2 hours, add 1 teaspoon of salt. 
Continue to simmer, adding more water as needed, until beans are soft, about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. 
Add pepper and gently stir. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

Put beans, butter, salt and pepper in Instapot and fill pot to 8 cup mark. Use bean setting, 30 minutes.
