    Default Dried broad beans?

    I dry broad beans of favoured varieties to plant the following year.

    I eat them boiled fresh from the pod.

    My surplus I freeze, but I was wondering, can I save them in dried form and just soak them before boiling? If so are they very inferior to fresh or frozen beans?

    Your comments appreciated!

    Well, in Mexico we actually eat them dry. Cook them like beans, they are great for soup, as a filling for "sopes" (just make them as refried beans), and as a snack fried with chilli flakes and lime they're great! The flavour is of course very different to that of fresh broadies, but still very nice.
