Dried Lima Bean Skins?

ZenFoodist | Feb 12, 2008 01:02 PM

So... yesterday I was all ready to make some baked favas with pancetta, leeks, olive oil and white wine and I realized I didn't have any more frozen favas from my garden. Instead I soaked a new bag of large limas overnight, and I've spent the last 15 minutes flaking off all of the skins that were hanging off. Yuck. Now I know why they registered a whopping 12 grams of fiber per serving :)

Do my fellow 'hounds normally peel t he skins off of their limas?
