I use dry broad beans reasonably often. I deal with skins by sprouting the seeds first then popping them out of their skins. Itís a little tedious. Iím going to look round for some loose skinned cultivars!

So how do you prepare them after that Ray

Once the skins are gone I cook the beans. They then might end up in a stew, or just mashed with some oil, garlic and a few spices, similar to hummus.
