True succotash contains lima beans and corn. The rest seems to be up for grabs. Succotash is thought to be one of the first recipes the Algonquin Indians taught the settlers at Plymouth Rock. Succotash was also made by the Narragansett Indians, who called it misckquitash, which means “boiled corn”. It is notable that the two primary ingredients are two of the main agricultural crops of many Native American tribes.
