GREEN CANDY


English shelling peas should be called green candy. A good proportion of the harvest does not even make it to the kitchen. Eating a fresh pea right our of the garden is a sweet treat that is a reward for your gardening effort. Once you have tasted the home grown fruit of a 'pisum sativum, frozen peas will never be the same. I like to eat them raw but blanching peas for a few seconds is the only cooking needed. What a treat!!!!

Yums! I had "mushy" peas with fish and chips on the ship. Not even the same!

Zoomie, Preaching to the choir!

Greg, Welcome back. I like mushy peas. Fresh picked even better.

I have actually had times in my kitchen when neither of us wanted to shell the peas. Too much work. o_0

cookiecrumb, I believe it must be the water in Marin. Purple Haze? Cranky tells me that you are waiting for your barbeque to be one with itself and grow into a whole.

Peas are my favorite veggie. And yes, when we grow them, they do seem to have a problem making it into the bowl during the shelling process....

Three Dogs BBQ, It is a good thing they do not fit on the grill otherwise I would try. We have a competition this weekend. Yahoo!
