I bought fresh fava beans two days ago and plan to use them on Thursday. The pods are unopened. Will they still be good or do I need to get fresher ones?

Thursday should be fine if refrigerated. The pods are pretty thick. More than a week and it becomes a little more problematic. Have fun peeling the little suckers.
