Be sure to pick pods that are fresh-looking and even-shaped.

Because their growing season is short, favas are available only occasionally. Look for them at farmers' markets, in produce sections of the supermarket, and in specialty food markets in early spring; they're out of season by early summer. Choose fresh-looking, even-shaped pods without spots. Avoid older, bulging beans.
