Store unwashed fresh beans in a container or plastic bag in the fridge for up to seven days.
Beans can be eaten raw or cooked. See varieties for more information.
RAINBOW SNAP BEANS
A mix of heirloom snap bean varieties including Dragon's Tongue, Red Swan, Ice Bean, Roma, Beurre De Rocquencourt, and Purple Dove.
Snap beans can be eaten raw or cooked. Raw will preserve the colours, or the "magic" coloured beans will turn green or yellow when perfectly cooked!
Also known as broad beans, fava beans are large, flat beans with a fresh & nutty flavour. You will get a mix of different heirloom varieties.
Fava beans can be eaten raw or cooked.
I always leave the seed coats on my favas, but if you prefer to remove them before eating:
Remove beans from pods
Lightly steam beans for about 1 minute
Pop the beans out of the seat coats
