I wanted to make this ahead for Thanksgiving. I thought it sounded wonderful when I was reading it. It did turn out wonderful. I cannot wait to serve it to my guests. I do have a suggestion, however... Make it when fresh corn and tomatoes are in season. I used fresh corn and tomatoes but had to buy frozen lima beans. I doubled the recipe and with the vegies being out of season, spent about $20.00 just to make it. That's ok this one time - it's a special occasion and everyone is going to love it! I had to find out how to skin the tomatoes, because I didn't know. You wash them and remove the stem. Boil a pot of water deep enough to cover the largest tomatoe. Have a container with ice water with ice floating it it ready - also enough to be able to submerse all of the tomatoes you plan to do. Cut a small shallow x on the bottom of each tomatoe. Put them in the boiling water, doing 1 at a time, for 30 seconds (really, just 30 seconds), and them put them in the ice water for 5 minutes. They came out beautiful! Thanks for a great recipe!
