I love them and have a pretty decent source, but boy are these puppies a PITA to peel.

Anyone have any tips?

Mix them with some olive oil, salt & pepper, then grill for 6-8min over high heat. Then just pop the beans out with your fingers. That's the best way I know how to peel fava beans. Chianti does indeed compliment them well.

Do you double peel them?

"Do you double peel them?"

If the beans are young enough they'll pop out of both inner & outer shells. If they're older beans, then you may need to bite the end off the inner shell and squeeze the bean into your mouth. Be sure to lick the salt and pepper off your fingers while you eat. Very fun and yummy way to eat favas.

...but do you need any suggestions for the main course?

Well, I was expecting all this.

That said, I had never tasted Fava beans till a month or so ago, a farmers market where I go has them pretty cheap, and I really do love the taste.

I usually saute them in a bit of butter and garlic. Then add s&p, boy are they yummy.

I had no idea fava beans needed to be peeled. Do the peels taste bad, or are they just more trouble to chew than they're worth?

I don't know, I just went online and everyone said they needed to be peeled.

The outer peel looks to be kind of thick and ropey, the inside peel, not so much.

You can eat the inner shell, but it can be a little chewy, especially with older beans. The nice part about grilling them is that the high heat seems to cause the shells to separate from the beans a little better.
