Peas

'Snap Peas' or 'Snow Peas' are a type of pea

vegetable

Growing:

Plant about a month or so before the last frost date for a spring harvest and again in late summer for a fall harvest. Different varieties grow differently. Many varieties of peas are climbers. Plant seeds an inch deep in rows a foot apart; thin plants to 1 inch. Harvest "regular" peas when pods become enlarged. Harvest "snow"/"snap" peas (which are eaten pod and all) when pods are about 3 inches long and the pod is still flat.

Selecting & Storing:

For "regular" peas, look for plump, bright pods that are firm. For snow/snap peas look for tender pods that are bright green and flat. Regardless of what type of pea you have, do not wash the pod before storing. Store in the refrigerator in an unsealed bag/container in the crisper for up to 5 days.

Basic Preparation:

"Regular" Peas: gently squeeze the pod, it will split open; remove the peas. Simmer in a pan of water until tender, but not mushy.

Snow/Snap Peas: These varieties are sometimes called "pod peas" because you eat the entire pod. Lightly rinse them and pat dry if using raw. They are a wonderfully sweet snack and are good on a veggy tray with dip, or added whole or cut in salads. They can also be lightly steamed or stir-fried, being careful not to over cook—they want to remain crisp and firm.
