This award goes to the person that makes me laugh all the time........https://pages.prodigy.net/indianahawk...wpage26/20.gif.........Deadly Sushi!

lindatooo 05-15-2004 10:55 PM

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

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

https://webpages.charter.net/connecti...smiley/bis.gif

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. https://webpages.charter.net/connecti...iley/worry.gif

Thank You all for this award! https://webpages.charter.net/connecti...iley/award.gif :D

And once again thank you Linaka! https://webpages.charter.net/connecti...smiley/tsr.gif

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

lindatooo 05-16-2004 09:55 AM

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! https://webpages.charter.net/connecti...smiley/apl.gif

I thought I would leave the Silence of the Lambs line to you guys!!!!

Tomatoes and silver beet (in England we call it swiss chard, it's like spinach except horrible - and it grows really well and no one likes it. So wehn giving away a pound of tomatoes, people get a bunch of silver beet if they want it or not!!!!)

Another "Two Fat Ladies" recipe for broad beans is "Beans Means Fritz"
Cooked fava beans are dressed with olive oil, bacon, onion. boiled egg and anchovies. Awesome!

-DEADLY SUSHI- 05-16-2004 02:05 PM

Hey, who are these 2 fat ladies?? https://webpages.charter.net/connecti...miley/sumo.gif https://webpages.charter.net/connecti...miley/sumo.gif
Seems like they enjoy using olive oil a lot!
And Kyles... thanks for telling us American folks what some of this stuff is!!! I would be totally lost without you telling me!!! https://webpages.charter.net/connecti...ley/cheers.gif

kyles 05-16-2004 02:17 PM

Oh dear Deadly Sushi, you never heard of Two Fat Ladies??? Right, The late Jennifer Patterson and Clarissa Dickson Wright made four series of fantastic cookery programmes, and wrote books to accompany the series. They are very English, and have an uncompromising attitude to using fresh ingredients, and as the title suggests, don't shy away from using oil and butter and even lard. I use their recipes quite a lot, Jennifer's beef in pastry is what I made for Christmas dinner. Check 'em out!

I've never heard of silver beet, but in the U.S. we have Swiss chard too, and no one here likes it either, except some of my dad's family. lol

I used to watch Two Fat Ladies awhile back. I can't remember where, but I enjoyed watching them. If I remember right, they were biker women (I won't call them chicks). Very funny! But I enjoyed it.

lindatooo 05-16-2004 10:21 PM

Two Fat Ladies were a hoot! I thoroughly enjoyed their cooking and their travels!

BubbaGourmet 05-17-2004 05:10 AM

To me, Jennifer Patterson made that show. She broke all the rules for a professional cook and did so unashamedly. She was funny and irreverent. I miss the show a lot.
