How to Store Fava Beans
Seal unshelled fava beans in a Glad® Food Storage Zipper Bag. Squeeze as much air as possible out when sealing.
Place the bag in the crisper drawer.
To store shelled favas, remove beans from the pod and boil for approximately 3 minutes until their outer skins can be easily slipped off.
Remove and discard the skins, then place prepared favas into a GladWare® food protection container before refrigerating.
How to Freeze Fava Beans
Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and add salt.
Remove favas from thick pods. Blanch in boiling water for 3 mins, then plunge into ice water for 3 mins.
After removing inner beans from pale skins, dry and pack into a Freezer Zipper bag.
Seal and remove as much air as possible from bags. Place in the deepest part of the freezer.
