Product Description

Product Description

Whole fava beans retain their skin and require soaking before use, but hold their shape even after prolonged cooking. These beans are the main ingredient in the traditional Egyptian dish of ful medames (try it for breakfast with a fried egg!) and perfect for hearty baked beans. Grown in Britain since the Iron Age, fava beans are delicious, nutritious and good for the soil.

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting taste, long cook 18 Jan 2014

Fascinated to get hold of some field/broad/fava beans finally after many years. I love fresh broad beans and wanted to replicate the delicious Egyptian dish ful mesdames. It's earthy and with slightly tough skins, but distinctly broad bean. A recipe booklet is included.
My only gripe is that they took a long time to cook despite presoaking, and represoaking in hot water....a whole hour and then some. Ok in vintage Rose Eliot books long cooking times were de rigeur, but in this faster better distributed world I've been cooking up chickpeas in ten minutes. Bemused
