Fava bean pro tip:

There are two parts of a fava bean to shell. First, snap off the stem and pull the string down the middle of the pod to remove the beans. Next, boil the fava beans in salt water for one minute. Place the fava beans in cold water and remove the thin shell. Enjoy with pasta or in risotto with zucchini and basil!
