I love Fava beans (also known as Broad Beans or Butter Beans). They are a bit of a workup but well worth it. To prepare the beans pop the pods and remove the beans - they will have a whitish skin on them. Bring a pot of water to a boil & put the beans in, boil for only a minute or two, drain. Place under cold water. Remove the white skin and the beans are ready to use. Use them now or pop them into your freezer
