How to double pod broad beans
I love broad beans but some people don't, I think that is because most people don't double pod them! If you don't they just look grey and their grey skins are not very inviting. So give double podding a try, you can then use them in soups, pasta dishes and much more. My next blog post will be a and broad bean bruschetta which is a great and healthy meal.
