Broad beans

In the past few weeks the humble broad bean has decorated our meals. I made broad bean mustered rice balls, fried and golden. Broad bean and cicory salad with fried egg for breakfast. Broad bean dip with anchovy’s on sourdough toast. And for the chickens a broad bean mash made from the last harvest.
