If you can get a hold of fresh fava beans in their pods, and enjoy boiled beans, they are simply delicious.
Last weekend I and a bunch of people peeled perhaps 20 pounds of fava beans. While our fingers grew tired, it was well worth it.
The technique everyone glommed on to was twisting the bean pod in between the beans then squeezing the bean out.
Boiling with garlic and salt in the pot was delicious. Or add olive oil, salt and garlic powder or fresh garlic after. Eat them just like that or mash to make a nice puree.
Pour olive oil in the puree and/or water to thin it down as needed.
