Where to find fava beans?
I live in the Phila area (specifically Drexel Hill) and want to know where and in what form I am most likely to find fava beans? I'd love to find them fresh in the pod, but have tried two grocery stores and haven't seen them fresh, canned or frozen - ideas?
Gentile's is an excellent suggestion. Iacone's in Reading Terminal has them as well. If you need a case or more, Giordano's at 9th/Washington usually has them very inexpensively. Case is @28 pounds, yields amazing little number of beans, after depodding and peeling.
I was just at Kimberton Whole Foods today & they have organic dried fava beans. Which leads me to wonder if Martindale's does, since they carry so much of the same merchandise & since it's so much closer to 2Jumpy. Worth checking.
