I've never even heard of a "Broad Bean"...."Broad Beams" but not the former

Aside from the stalk idea.....

How many friends do you have?

Just some notions but nothing I've tried:

Roast the beets before you freeze them (I do love roasted beets) then use them for winter salads
Pickle the beans - there are recipes for tipsy beans I've seen
make sweet relish with the corn or a corn/bean combination


If I think of more I'll post them...

Thanks Linaka :D



I would like to thank Jess and her beans.... without them, I would not have a joke. I would also like to thank my cat for waking me up SO early... that I was way too tired to go outside and have fun, thus I focused on the internet. And let me not forget to mention all of you who has endured listening to "humor" for the last 3 months. Without you, there would be no one to laugh at me.

Thank You all for this award! :D

And once again thank you Linaka!

I can't keep up with the humour, so I shall just do a boring regular post about broad beans (you guys know the little critters as fava beans)

There is a great two fat ladies recipe for broad beans called Egyptian beans, I think it is in their second book (look it up in your local library) where you cook them slowly in olive oil. Lovely. You can cook and puree broad beans and serve them like a mash with meat dishes. I love them cooked, then the outer shell peeled off, let them cool and mix them with red kidney beans chopped celery and spring onion and a good salad dressing.

Hope that gets you started

Ahhhhhhhhh Fava beans! They're the ones that go so wonderfully with "a nice bottol of Chianti" as Dr. Lechter said! :twisted:

Only thing is that they do have to be peeled. But they are tasty!


Oh, and Sushi, I think we owe your kitties a nice catnip mouse!

One veggie I NEVER have trouble giving away is Tomatoes - so when I have a bumper Zucchini crop It's mandatory that squash goes with tomatoes when I give them away!
