    I have made this with raw, bone in/skin on turkey. I also like it with smoked turkey necks. I have not made this in a slow cooker. I usually put all ingredients in an old crock with a lid and, bake it slow. I do add a bay leaf , celery leaves. So many possible variations. There is a cafe in Texas that makes the best lima and ham stew I have ever tasted. Served with hot corn bread and a tall glass of buttermilk. This is an old timey stew that was cooked in the soup well on the back of wood heat stoves, keeping it simple is best. Enjoy!!raf

    Have been making this for a couple years now, and really enjoy it. Turkey thighs & dried lima beans aren't something I'm often cooking with, so I was surprised by how much I liked the flavors in this recipe. It is a stew so it's got that hearty homey thing going on, but the lemon juice brightens & lightens it up so nicely. It's a go-to recipe for me in the fall-winter (served with rice, or cauliflower-rice, or noodles, you get the picture ;-)

    Boy I sure wanted to like this. I even upped the flavor by adding quality beer and Vermouth instead of water, as called for. But the broth was too bland, and the meat seemed to have nothing from which to enhance its flavor.

    This was not good at all! The lemon was overpowering and everything dried up into mush.

    Change the 1-1/2 cups of water to chicken broth and you have a good tasting turkey stew.

    This dish was OK, nothing great. I tried to make it taste more interesting by adding more of the stuff I love like garlic, lemon and butter and parsley but it was still just OK. won't make again, sorry.
