Whole Fava Beans

Fava beans are under used and misunderstood. Favas are tasty and easy to prepare. There is a myth that not only do they need to be shucked, they also need to be individually peeled. This simply isn’t true! Pop a shucked fava in your mouth, yes eating it raw is fine, and if it isn’t tough and chewy it doesn’t need to be peeled. Old large beans are used for drying. In the spring they will be fine to cook like a lima bean. But the fava is meatier and sweeter than the lima. And they do not need to be eaten with liver and a fine chianti…Try them you might like them!
