Butterbean Stew

1 lb Large dried limas; (butterbeans)
1 tb (rounded) dried onion; or to taste*
2 Chipotles; (dried type), torn up, or to taste
2 ts Rosemary
2 sm Bay leaves
1/2 ts Thyme
1/4 ts Celery seed **
Salt to taste
Brown rice; maybe a cup

* don't substitute fresh; surprisingly, in this dish, it's not as good.

** very approximate, but don't overdo it. several dashes Maggi seasoning (look near the Worcestershire in most supermarkets, or with the Latino food at Meijer's; it's a dirt-cheap vegetarian way to add richness to soups and stews).

Put everything but the Maggi, rice and salt in a slow cooker (salt makes beans get tender much slower.) Cook on "high" till the beans are tender and the smell is driving you crazy; 20-30 min. before ready to serve, add rice, salt and Maggi.

Makes maybe five or six big bowls.
