[ Private Label And Packaging Information ]

Also Known As: HABAS BEANS, PEELED FAVA BEANS, FAVA BEANS

Product Info:
The Fava Bean (Vica Faba) is a dark tan, flat, oval bean that comes in an inedible large pod. The Fava is about 3/4 to 1 inch in length. The Habas is a peeled Fava Bean. The Habas has a creamy white color, assertive, almost bitter earthy flavor and granular texture. The Fava can also be referred to as a faba, broad, horse, English, Scotch field, rounded or Windsor bean. The Fava was the only bean known to Europeans until the discovery of the "new world". The Fava's pedigree goes back to ancient Egypt as a staple in the diet of the pyramid builders. Cultivation can be traced back to the bronze age in Switzerland and the iron age in Great Britain.

Suggested Use:
Using the Habas Beans instead of a Fava saves a substantial amount of time. Habas can be substituted for Fava in any recipe. These beans are great with onions, garlic, and olive oil. Or try cooking Habas with tomatoes and fresh basil.

Ingredients:
Peeled fava beans.

Basic Preparations:
Habas beans cook quickly if soaked for 3 hours before cooking. If soaked, simmer for 25 minutes until tender. Without soaking, rinse then simmer until tender. One cup dry yields 1 1/2 cups cooked.
