The broad beans were fabulous - small, a bit smaller than my thumb nail, and so tender - not a thought of removing their little jackets. I podded them and popped them straight into boiling water for just a couple of minutes - we ate them with good gammon steaks, creamy fresh parsley sauce and English new potatoes with mint from the garden - there is nothing better.
Those people who don't like broad beans can never have eaten them freshly picked and cooked like that. Bought broad beans are dry and floury - a different animal all together
