                BROAD BEANS WITH JAMON

                If you are traveling in Spain this coming year, you may just find this recipe on the Tapas Bar, as an item on a Starter Menu or served in Spanish homes as a side dish. It is basically the Spanish twist to beans with ham.  I have made this recipe many times as a contribution to a BBQ or a movie night buffet. Add to this a brown bag full of diagonally cut baguette and you are an instant Gourmet Cook.  Fava beans are hard to find in our grocery stores so I use the frozen package of Lima beans. Also, I would choose a crisp and fragrant dry white wine like Sauvignon Blanc or Chenin Blanc to bring out the best flavours!
