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.

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

There is nothing wrong with the company, or the service. Good packing too. However, I totally dislike this variety of beans now. Nowhere in the product description does it say that it tastes awful. It is therefore, not a tragedy that this beans fell our of favour (historically).

It is simply incomparable in flavour to pretty much every other commercially viable beans out there in the market. It tastes disgusting. By all means I will try Hodmedod's other products. But never again will I touch fava beans, or 'great British beans' as they call it. My God it is awful!

It was your job to warn me that these beans have a taste that is not liked by a majority. I would have braced myself, or more importantly, chosen to buy something else from you. I still can't get rid of the taste from my mouth. Perfect service. Awful product. Still retching.
