    Hi again, forgot to mention, I buy Favas fresh in the produce department. You can also get them fresh frozen online, however a bit pricey. Try for deals.

    Love Fava Beans any way I can eat them. This recipe is another delicious treat. I am in Caifornia and can purchase them in some grocery stores. If they don't keep Favas on hand sometimes they will order them for you. Fava's are seasonal depending upon where you are located. There is a Nugget Market here and they always carry them during their season, spring. Also delicious sauteed with bacon. My portuguese father introduced them to me when I was young, later grew them in my yard.

    Where can one get cooked fava beans (or uncooked fava beans)? I've only seen canned fava beans at my grocery stores.
