Pod beans boil them just tender then, if you can be fagged,pop them out of their skins and fry with onions in butter 'til they start to colour, bit of salt(Usually enough in the butter) and pepper, job's a good'un. I put a little cassia in mine too.

Or tart of beans, pod, boil, shell, beat in a mortar to a goo along with egg yolks, cream, sugar(Or honey) and cinnamon/cassia. Put goo in part baked pastry case and bake off the goo and pastry......Bright green, sweet and fresh tasting. You'll have to play with the proportions but don't skimp on the beans and it's worth taking the time to take themout of their leathery jackets, inproves the colour, taste and 'seems' to cut down on the windypops =o)

Ooooh, sounds nice, especially the fried beans. My crew aren't big on desserts but I might have a go at the tart as there are quite a lot to use up.

At long last, back from Wales and I've posted the few pictures I took on day 2 of the June weekend ... kendEvent#

Nothing exciting...
