This warm broad bean and bacon salad recipe is great served with hunks of fresh crusty white bread.
Don’t know how to prepare broad beans? First, pod the beans from their velvet-lined, green and long pod. You usually get around 5 or 6 usable beans in each pod, and at this stage, they can look quite greyish in colour.
Then, follow step 1 below – this technique is often known as ‘double-podding’, and while fiddly, is well worth the effort for the incredibly tender, bright green beans you’ll find.
