English Cox Apples
A member of the legume family, broad beans are pretty hardy and adaptable - they grow in most soils and climates. They're a great source of protein and carbohydrates, as well as vitamins A, B1 and B2.
Broad beans should be podded, unless they are very young and tender. Put the beans in a pan, cover with boiling water, return to the boil and cook for 3-5 minutes. Then drain, empty into cold water, slit each pod along its seam and run your thumb along the furry inside to push the beans out. To double pod - or remove the thin skin that covers each individual bean - use your nail to slit the skin, then pop out the bright green bean.
Use as soon as possible, but if you need to store them, keep in the fridge for 1-2 days.

The customer base for Tythe Barn is made up almost exclusively of chefs, caterers or wholesalers who supply the restaurant industry. Working with chefs rather than retailers gives Peter and Dan more freedom to experiment with the produce they grow. They can focus on seasonality, and grow a wider selection of produce than they might normally be able to do. Often developing new varieties collaboratively with their customers, Dan and Peter are at the forefront of restaurant menu innovation with regards to fresh produce. The quality is always excellent, with the crops grown for flavour and freshness above all, and we are excited to be able to share some of this with you.Find out more
