Raw Kidney Beans and Kidney Bean sprouts contain lectin, a glycoprotein that can bind to sugars in membranes, causing changes in the membrane that lead to agglutination (clumping of cells) and mitosis (cell division). In the digestive tract, they bind to intestinal cells and block absorption, causing nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea lasting about 4 hours, after ingesting as little 4 raw Kidney Beans. The Kidney Bean lectin (hemagglutinin) is destroyed by thorough boiling for 10 minutes, after which water should be discarded and replaced before cooking, whether simmering or cooking in a slow cooker/crock pot.

60-75 days.     Shell or Dry Bean      One of the most famous lima beans, introduced in 1888 by Peter Henderson & Co. Henderson's Bush Heirloom Lima Bean is an excellent baby lima, smooth and with delicate, buttery flavor. Found on a Virginia roadside by a soldier returning from the Civil War, it was grown by a local market gardener and passed along to T. W. Woods & Sons, who grew it for two years and then sold the whole stock to Peter Henderson & Company in 1887. The plants are dwarf bush and can be grown like any other bush bean, setting forth 2½-3½" long pods, bearing 3-4 small green seeds each that dry to a lovely creamy-white. Very productive, bears reliably until the first frosts hit. Great for cooking, canning, freezing, or drying.

Moral cowardice that keeps us from speaking our minds is as dangerous to this country as irresponsible talk. The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character.
