the taste is wonderful. when young you can eat them raw, when "ripe" blanche them, remove the skin, don't use salt cos like with lentils it makes the skin go tough.
try a sandwich with salami, broad beans, garlic oil, salt peper, chives on a ciabatta. classic italian anitpasto on a sandwich...great! when cooked add a spice we in holland call beanspice.. don't know the name in English, sorry but the Latin name is Satureja hortensis
