Fava Beans



















Fava Beans might be new to many of you. For more information click here to read all about favas according to the Fine Cooking magazine (source of photo). One note, fava beans are associated with favism--a very rare but severe enemia--to read the wikipedia entry click here.

I was reminded by a customer that beet greens/tops attached to the baby beets in the this week's share are a delicious cooking green. I will post his recipe tomorrow. Beet greens are actually my favorite of all greens.

New to fava beans! A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.
