Peas are planted!

Fresh Shelled Peas

Farmer Rob has planted Peas this spring.

Generally, Peas are harvested mid to late June.

Hopefully, mother nature cooperates!

How To Care for Your Fresh Peas

Freezing

Wash Peas.  Bring water to a boil.  Drop peas in boiling water for 30-45 seconds (blanche).  Drain in a colander.  Rinse with cold water.  Pat dry.  Place in one quart freezer bags getting all air out of freezer bag.

HINT: If you have a vacuum sealer just wash peas and place in sealed bags. No need to blanche. How easy!

Recipes

Sautéd Fresh Peas

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with olive oil. Add some sweet onion, and cook until softened. Add in your Fresh Peas and sauté just a few more minutes. Stir occasionally. If you would like, add salt & pepper to taste. Enjoy!
