Yes, yes, with his liver and a nice chianti. Lovely, Clarice.
Fava beans are in season and I've never had them, but I figured my recent reunion with lima beans wouldn't make them such a stretch. Using my rule of "don't make a lot of what you've never had before," I bought a little package at DeCicco's and after shelling, there were about maybe 20 beans.
You boil them in salted water for five minutes, drain and rinse. Then you have to peel off the second shell around the bean, and you find they are this amazing, beautiful green.
I drizzled some olive oil, sea salt and ground pepper on them, and Jeeps and I ate them as an appetizer, right out of the bowl without ceremony. They were delicious, kind of a cross between edamame and lima beans. Definitely making these again. This has gardening potential, too....
