Aromatic Broad Bean Spread

In June, Broad beans or Fresh Lima beans are abundant. Now is the time to pick, shell and freeze some for winter. Of course you can simply enjoy eating the beans dipped in salt or with a piece of cheese, as a nibble, with your drink. If you wanted to go further, these little green treasures are delicious cooked with coriander and rice.
