Fava beans are a gem that pops up during the summer. They are a type of broad bean that is not dried out (like other beans) and is eaten while it’s still green. Fava beans have a creamy and buttery taste that make excellent additions to every summer meal. Plus, the large pods make for easy shelling and storage.
To freeze fava beans, shell, blanch for 1-2 minutes, plunge in to an ice bath, pat dry, and then place in a freezer safe container. These beans make another great addition to stews and even rice dishes.
