I was talking to Robert Rodgers this week and just learned about this. It’s too late in the season to grow my own but I can certainly purchase organic fava beans and try to sprout them.. wow!
Once upon a time RR interviewed someone who drank a lot of eggplant juice for the nicotine. Have you ever tried tincturing eggplant?
I never tried juicing egg plant, but I grow it and enjoy making humus from baked , pureed egg plant. Have also made it into vegie burgers , egg plant jerky , and Parmesan , and soup.
The person you heard speak about juicing was Glen Pettibone. He has done blog talk radio for Robert a few times. I do juice lightly steamed fava pods and use this to make dried l-dopa chips….very portable.
Depending where you are located, you may be able to grow a fall crop, starting the 1st of July and the beans will start October 1 and go until you get below 26 degrees. I had a good fall crop here one time. (usually it gets too hot and dry for them in August and the weather turns cold for just a few days the end of October and kills them) So it is iffy at best. End of February or 1st of March is best time to plant them in east TN. May God Bless and guide you.
