Green peas are what we think of most when we talk about peas, but snow peas with their edible pods and sugar snaps are also a favorite of mine. They are a great source of vitamins A, C, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin and they carry potassium. Peas carry more protein than most vegetables and they are a good source of fiber.

Cooking Instructions

To prepare fresh peas – remove from pod one pound of peas in a pod will yield about 1 cup of edible peas. Plunge shelled peas into a pot of boiling water, boil until tender about 5 to 6 minutes or place in a steamer and steam until tender for 5 to 6 minutes. Micro wave ˝ cup raw peas with 1 tbsp water for three minutes covered on high. Let rest for one minute before serving.
Storage: Buy peas in the pod and shells or buy frozen peas. Fresh peas won’t keep long, use them quickly.
Tip: To lower the sodium content in canned peas drain, rinse and reheat in fresh, unsalted water.
