These delicate springtime beans come in a fibrous pod and must be hand plucked and then peeled. Every 8oz jar contains about 120 beans, blanched quickly and conserved in olive oil with juicy slices of lemon. A few Tasmanian peppercorns added at the end may stain the lemons pink.
Lemony favas are a versatile pantry staple bursting with bright springtime flavor and texture. We like to serve them in a simple salad with plenty of the liquid from jar, lots of chopped dill, and slivers of a sharp cheese like pecorino. They also shine atop a ricotta toast with plenty of mint; plated over a poached fish, with a grain salad, or simply snacked on at room temperature with various appetizers.
