Double Podding



I’ve recently been getting a weekly seasonal organic veg box from Riverford Farms, it’s amazing, arriving every Thursday morning bursting with fresh veg, still covered in mud sometimes, shows the freshness.

One of the inclusions in recent boxes has been some fresh broad beans, which I’ve had fun with!

(I did chuckle to myself when I wrote that title because Pod has been my family nickname since I was 18, but that’s a whole other story!)

Double podding broad beans is a laborious task but a very cathartic one at the same time which does deliver to you some delicious tasting and beautifully coloured beans at the end, which go well in salads or tossed with green pesto, garlic and pasta.

I highly recommend you get hold of some and give them a go, it’s very satisfying and great to do whilst listening to a good podcast or audio book.

  1. First remove the beans from their pods.
  2. Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil and add the beans. Cook for appromiately 2 minutes and then drain.
  3. Place the beans into a bowl of cold water.
  4. Pop the tender, bright green beans out of their thick, leathery skins by squeezing gently.
