Fresh Shelled Peas

Generally, Peas are harvested mid to late June.

Hopefully, mother nature cooperates!

How To Care for Your Fresh Peas


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!


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!
