We finally have the long-awaited and much anticipated fava beans! Get them while you can because their season will be gone before you know it. So what’s the big deal about these colorful beans? In some cultures they’re considered a symbol of good fortune. They were the central food of the St. Joseph Day altar, as the crop thrived and kept the Sicilians fed. Legend has it if you carry fava beans with you, you’ll never be hungry! For more about fava beans, read the latest piece from NOLA.com’s Ann Maloney.
