Schinoussa Island Fava (Split Peas), 400gr, no preservatives

Delicious fava split peas from Schinoussa island.
Manufacturer: OKTO ADELPHIA
SKU: EL1115

The “Katsouni” (from which the Fava Schinousa produced), is the rare leguminous (pisum sativum), which gives the sweet, smooth, and delicious fava from Schinoussa. Excellent source of carbohydrates (63%) and protein (20%) which enhances this lovely food, since it is a rich source of plant protein. Also rich in soluble fiber. To prepare, boil (after washing well) at 3 water / 1 fava parts. Initially over high heat, to skim, and then to low, stirring frequently, and putting an onion cut in four pieces and salt (ideally with authentic sea salt -We have so many to choose from! -). When the onion is melt, withdraw, add olive oil and serve (with capers or sea fennel & lemon juice, or with caramelized onions!).

Cultivation of Schinousas Katsouni fava bean is difficult, as the plant is susceptible, and the whole process must be done manually. Gathered in the morning with dew, before dawn, because if it catches the sun, it breaks and falls apart. Also, it needs natural wind to make the traditional winnowing (the straw separation wrist), otherwise, it can be destroyed. Because of these difficulties, the cultivation was almost abandoned in recent decades. Only in the last decade, some young farmers started to revive the cultivation and offer the experience of scrumptious, nutritious food to the public.
