We ate the three and a half pounds of fresh farm fava beans today! Pix: 1) Box of beans, B) Inedible pods and outer bean casings on left, separated good parts on right, 3) Good parts cooked and ready to EAT!
I microwaved them and tossed them with olive oil and freshly ground sea salt and pepper, and it was DELICIOUS. Dean helped me extract the good parts from the chaff, out on the patio. It took a while, but we both listened to podcasts and watched the chipmunks’ antics, and great was the reward for our noble effort.
