Borlotti beans are really beautiful.
Even the pods are beautiful. This is this years haul.
It was a really windy day when we picked the beans. In fact it also poured with rain about two minutes after this photo was taken.
Podded, there ended up being about three freezer bags worth. This probably works out as about 6 family meals.
(As you probably know, borlotti beans are really versatile. You can freeze them fresh, or you can dry them. They keep their shape really well when boiled – though they do lose their speckles.)
