Fava Beans have been grown in the UK since the Iron age. Split fava beans don't need soaking and cook down to a very soft consistency.
COOKING INSTRUCTIONS To cook simply cover the beans with water or stock, boil for 10 minutes then simmer, braise or roast for 20-30 minutes more. Pre-soaking speeds up cooking but isn't essential. The beans will get softer and softer as they cook.
NOTES ON COOKING DRIED PULSES Cooking times for dried pulses will be longer at higher altitudes and when cooking with hard water or older pulses. Adding bicarbonate of soda during soaking and/or cooking will soften the pulses and reduce the cooking time.
Cooked pulses can be used immediately or frozen for later use.
