Yakityak's Greek Style Crockpot Lima Beans

Traditionally Greek cuisine uses fava beans not lima beans, but favas can be hard to come by in the United States. Lima beans are similar in size, but milder in flavor. This dish requires a little forethought in that you really do need to soak the beans for 18 - 24 hours, but other than this step (which is quick to set up) the preparation time is minimal.

Place all ingredients EXCEPT the salt and 2 lbs of the tomatoes in the crockpot. Stir well. Cover and cook on low for 7+ hours.

Just before serving add the rest of the tomatoes and the salt. Stir well. Serve.
