   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      pounds        dry lima beans -- small
    3      quarts        boiling water
    8      ounces        salt pork -- finely diced
      1/4  cup           instant minced onion
    3      tablespoons   prepared mustard
    2      teaspoons     Worcestershire sauce
    2      teaspoons     chili powder
      1/8  teaspoon      garlic powder
    2      cans          tomato soup, condensed -- (10 1/2-oz each)
      1/4  cup           vinegar
    1 1/3  tablespoons   brown sugar
    2      cups          bean cooking liquid
 
      Line four 8x8-inch baking pans with heat-resistant freezer wrap.  Allow
  enough extra wrap to fold over top.  Use one pan for each six servings or
  one-fourth of the recipe.  Do not line pans for food to be served without
  freezing.
 
      Add beans to boiling water; return to boiling.  Boil beans 2 minutes;
  then soak beans 1 hour (or overnight, if preferred).
      Cook beans slowly until tender, about 45 minutes.  Drain; save 2 cups
  cooking liquid.
      Brown salt pork with onion.  Mix remaining ingredients with salt pork
  mixture.  Add beans; stir gently.  Pour one-fourth of mixture into each
  baking pan.
 
 TO SERVE WITHOUT FREEZING
      Preheat oven to 400 F. (hot).  Bake 30 minutes.
 
 TO FREEZE
      Cool for 30 minutes at room temperature.  Complete wrapping by pulling
  paper up over top of food.  Put edges of wrap together and fold several
  times so paper lies directly on top of food.  Fold ends of freezer wrap
  over the top and seal with freezer tape.  Label with name of food, date of
  freezing, and last date the food should be used for best eating quality
  (about 6 months).  Freeze immediately for 10 to 12 hours before removing
  packages from the pans.
 
 TO HEAT FROZEN FOOD
      Preheat oven to 400 F. (hot).  Remove freezer wrap.  Place food in
  baking pan.  Bake 1 hour or until center is hot.
