Green Peas

Image result for green peas

Buy 3 pounds for 4 servings.  Look for bright green, fresh-looking pods that are somewhat velvety to the touch.


Prepare and serve as soon as possible after purchase.  Shell and wash just before cooking.  Reserve a few pods to cook with the peas.


Cook peas, covered, in 1 inch boiled salted water for 8 to 12 minutes.  Drop in a few of the pods for additional flavour.


Remove the pods.  Season with pepper and butter or margarine.  Try adding a sprinkling of chopped fresh mint leaves for variety.  Serve at once while the colour is bright and the flavour is fresh and sweet.
