Broad Beans Aplenty
Broad Beans used to be (nearly) every child's nightmare dish, along with boiled-to-death cabbage and brussell sprouts 8-/
But now we have a new generation of EDAMAME lovers!
The girls picked 130 pods of lovely juicy broad bean pods this very morning.
They will be taking a bunch each home with them and will help their mummies make dinner tonight. They are very tasty when they are blanched in boiling water then tossed in butter and sesame seeds, or added to peas, carrots and corn. YUM!!
