Peeled Fava Beans, called Habas, have a creamy pale yellow color, bold, earthy flavor and granular texture.
Carefully sort beans and rinse thoroughly. Soak 1 cup of beans in water 4 to 6 hours or overnight. Drain. Place in a pot and add water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook 20-25 minutes and strain.
Storage & handling
Store in a dry, cool place.

Habas con jamon is a common dish in Granada, Spain. Although typically made with fresh fava beans, this simple dish is just as delicious prepared with our dried Habas. If Serrano ham is unavailable, prosciutto or country ham will also work well.
