fava beans

I braved the downpouring rain (storm in late May in california is not common, is the next big one coming?) this afternoon to the farmer's market to get some fava beans. I had them earlier this spring on a couple different occasions in restaurants. But right now, they are at their peak, and the price is right (50 cents a pound). Fava is really one of my favorite things to eat. I usually like bold flavors and spices but the earthy yet delicate and clean taste of fava beans is just fucking great. Shit, I should have bought more than two pounds today.
