Farmer John just let us know that the farm team harvested fava beans and green beans (variety: Early Provider) for the market tomorrow.  It’s still a bit early so they’ll be in limited supply; be sure to come soon after the market opens at 1o am.  Fava beans are easy to prepare, very delicious and a great source of protein:  boil beans (in pods) in salted water for 6 minutes.  Drain and let cool for 15 minutes.  While beans are cooling, warm butter and sage leaves in a saucepan; cook for 5 minutes until you can smell the sage.  Squeeze cooled beans out of pods into bowl and toss with butter and fried sage.  Season with salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.  Serve warm — yum!
