Broad beans are summer-nuggets of deliciousness!

With time and nimble fingers, you can transform the common broad bean into a tender supreme-bean; your go-to summer ingredient.

Make sure you buy locally grown pods, with low food miles, to ensure they are at their best when they get to your kitchen.

This recipe for marinaded broad beans is a Pickle Shack favourite. Use them in salads, on toast or serve them with charred cucumber and saffron mayonnaise (as pictured) for an epic summer starter.
