A Sign of Spring

Big fat shiny fava beans were at Farmer's Market today. I got them and peeled open the pods with their weird cottony centers. Popped out the beans and cooked them for a minute in boiling water. Waited for them to cool a bit, sliced open one edge with a sharp knife and popped out the shiny, spring-green insides.

And we ate them just like that.

Sounds like edamame. Boil them, pop them out of their shells and eat them.

Our farmer's market starts up here next week. I CAN'T WAIT!!! yippee, woo hoo...... fresh veggies and fruit!
