Succotash (from Narragansett msíckquatash, "boiled corn kernels"[1]) is a food dish consisting primarily of corn and lima beans or other shell beans.[1] Other ingredients may be added including tomatoes[2] and green or sweet red peppers.[3] Because of the relatively inexpensive and more readily available ingredients, the dish was popular during the Great Depression in the United States. It was sometimes cooked in a casserole form, often with a light pie crust on top as in a traditional pot pie. Succotash is a traditional dish of many Thanksgiving celebrations in New England[4] as well as in Pennsylvania and other states. In some parts of the American South, any mixture of vegetables prepared with lima beans and topped with lard or butter is called succotash.

Succotash in popular culture

The word succotash is used as part of a catch phrase of the Warner Bros. cartoon cat Sylvester: "Sufferin' succotash!"[5] The depression-era exclamation is said to be a minced oath/euphemism of "Suffering Savior". Daffy Duck also said "Sufferin' succotash!" from time to time.
