Fava beans. Ever cooked them?

Post by Dgflorida » Mon Sep 09, 2019 9:16 am

I got a small package of fava beans on discount. I assumed that they cook up like all the other dry beans. But I read up on them on the internet and it said they need special treatment because the "skin" is so tough. The package says just cook them as normal. Do any of you have experience with fava beans?

They are called broad beans here, we grow them. Yummy. I have only cooked them form fresh. I like them single podded but will also DOUBlE pod them ( as theya re a very bright green if you do so ) The double podded beans make a great hummus -like dip.

Great to know that they might be a good buy. I really enjoy beans. They all taste good and uniquely different to me. So you eat them fresh, rinty? I will have to save a few seeds and try growing them.
