Madeline Viveiros,a friend from Swansea,(Mrs. J.V.), gave me this yummy recipe years ago. Today it would be made in a crockpot, but when I got this she didn't use one, I'm sure.
FAVA BEANS are large, shiny green beans, often called BROAD BEANS. (NOTE:According to my Fannie Farmer Cookbook, they are in the market in April, May and June. Directions: shell the beans, and cook them in enough water to cover.) THIS RECIPE calls for canned fava beans, Progresso produces them. This was a favorite with her family.
