The best way to store fava beans is in their pods and inside a plastic bag, ideally, a bag that has a small hole should be used, and if it is kept in the refrigerator moisture can be retained and this way freshness will last. Shell fava beans or take out the fava beans from their shell only right before cooking because this will ensure that no moisture, vitamins, or nutrients will be lost.
