Fava Bean Mash

Fava beans, or runner beans, are known for their sweet taste (and yes, also for being a favorite of Hannibal Lector).

I am happy to announce that we had a bumper crop of favas this year! With just four plants, I got a tremendous yield of these tasty, buttery beans. It took a bit of TLC over the winter, but now that spring is here, I have been able to reap the reward of my efforts. Seriously, I am up to my ears in fabulous favas.
