First broad bean crop

broad beans Aug

The broad beans on our Marley Hill allotment have produced their first crop which we have now picked. The beans have been frozen but we boiled up the pods to make a vegetable stock. Nothing therefore wasted. The stock is now in one of our freezers and we are thinking of using it to make paella. Sadly we don't grow rice but we do have some trout we got in a swap. We are thinking of smoking it and some of it could then go into the paella. Watch this space.

wow, interesting use of broad beans.. we love them in a salad cooked gently with a bit of garlic and whatever herbs come to hand. So much nicer than the broad beans I had to eat as a child.
