Nice. So you met a guy at a coffee shop and he offered to take you home and show you his fridge?

I assume you remove them from their skins, like a fava. Render some bacon fat, add them to the pan, then cream, and let simmer until cooked. Do you add anything else, maybe lettuce at the end? These are so good even just raw.

that's a good start. of course, you only need to shuck limas, not peel, but i'm assuming that's what you meant (the tough outer peel, but unlike favas the skin doesn't need to be removed). and, of course, add the rendered bacon back in. savory is nice, or thyme.
here's an old richard olney recipe for favas that i also use for limas:

CREAMED FAVA BEANS AND BACON (Feves au Lard Fume)

5 pounds young fava beans, in pods

1/4 pound lean bacon strips

1 tablespoon butter

1 branch fresh savory (or pinch finely crumbled dried savory)

About 3 tablespoons water

Salt

1/2 cup whipping cream

3 egg yolks

Freshly ground black pepper

Lemon juice

Chopped parsley

Shell beans and remove skins from all except those pods that are tiny and bright green. Cut bacon in 1/2-inch sections, parboil for a few seconds to remove excess salt and drain.

Cook bacon in butter in heavy saucepan over low heat 2 to 3 minutes. Bacon should remain limp. Add fava beans, savory, just enough water to moisten lightly and salt to taste. Cover tightly and cook over high heat few seconds. Turn heat to low again so beans stew in own steam rather than boiling. Cook, shaking pan gently from time to time, until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat and cool 1 minute or so.

Mix cream, egg yolks and pepper to taste and stir gently into fava beans. Return to low heat, stirring until sauce is only lightly bound, coating spoon thinly. Sauce should not approach boil. Squeeze in few drops lemon juice to taste, sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve.

Makes 4 servings.
