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!
