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!
