How to Preserve Fava Beans


If I need to make a tincture out of sprouted beans ( these will be the beans and a little green sprouts coming out of them), do I need to dry them first or mash and cover with brandy.  Do sprouted beans have same amount of levadopa. Also is it possible to make powder from pods using dehydrator. My parents have access to fresh fava beans, but it will only
last for the summer. How do I preserve large quantity for the next 9-10 months?

Yes, you can lightly steam fava pods and dry them in a dehydrator and then  powder them. I like to juice them also after light steam and make chips. The recipe is in the fava pamphlet on this website is downloadable. This is a good way to preserve them for the year.
