Tidbit and Fact:
The name ‘Lupin’ derives from the Latin word ‘lupinus’ (meaning wolf), and was given with regard to the fact that many found that the plant has a tendency to ravage the land on which it grows. The peas, which appear after the flowering period were also said to be fit only for theconsumption of wolves. Lupin beans are commonly sold in a salty solution in jars (like olives andpickles) and can be eaten with or without the skin.
