Taste: Now at the beginning of the season, our broad beans are so young and fresh that they are delicious even raw. Just remove them from the pod and from their skin and eat them as they are, or try them sprinkled with lemon juice and accompanied by a salty Pecorino.
Region: Among the most ancient plants in cultivation and the easiest to grow, it is believed that they became part of the eastern Mediterranean diet in around 6000 BC. Our broad beans are the best on the market, grown in Southern Italy and specifically in sunny Calabria. When the UK season begins, we’ll buy them locally too.
Quality: The difference between fresh and dried or frozen beans is so great it’s almost impossible to compare, as the flavour changes significantly. Fresh is surely the best choice and the most versatile as it’s good for salads, soups, purees…
Cost: We always let you know the price per kg so you can easily compare our prices. At the moment you will struggle to find them anywhere else!
Natoora broad beans: £1.99/250gr, £5.96/1kg
