Fava Beans (Organic)

Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative


12 oz

Fava beans, also known as broad beans, may be a lot of work to prepare, but they’re certainly worth it. First, you’ll want to remove the beans from the pod -- make it easy by pulling on the “string” along the seam of the pod. Next, after quickly blanching the beans, rub off the outer shell to access the buttery beans inside. A delicious taste of late spring, they’re ready to top a toast, enliven a salad, or add dimension to a spring ragu or hearty soup.
