Last evening the Head Gardener (also known as Mrs H.) brought back these borlotti beans from Polytunnel World. Our cunning plan is to eat what's ready in the garden and work our supper around what we have, rather than what we just dream up and disappear to the supermarket to buy. In the past we've left the belotti beans for longer and then dried them for use in casseroles, but not last night. Mrs. H. remembered a friend mentioning borlotti bean rissotto so she made up a recipe; I could see it involved onion, a small courgette and parmasen cheese and chicken stock, along with the beans. It was absolutely wonderful...actually it was better than that!
