Friday

 My sweet co-worker Annabella brought me some favas from her front yard and suggested we blanch them with some salt water and top with shaved pecorino cheese and lemon,
I added some chive blossoms and we ate it with butter-fried pork with that pineapple sage...
So tender and delicious!

I made favas with my son last night, here is a little blog to share.

Fava beans are a lot of work from garden to plate & don't go too far. You sure have to savour each one, which isn't difficult to do.

i know, there was only a small plate, so we savoured each one... but jeez was i wishing for a huge bowl!

I'm brewing chive blossom vinegar right now. It didn't occur to me to use them for flavoring a dish.

Yum! Fresh vegetables are the best.
