Sugar Snap Peas

Also called sugar peas, these are a cross between the English pea and a snow pea.  The entire pod and peas are edible. Sugar snap peas are available during spring and fall.

Best served fresh, if peas must be stored, keep in a perforated plastic bag. Do not wash before storing; rinse just before use. Refrigerate them in a plastic bag for up to 3 days. Sugar snap peas should be served raw or only briefly cooked in order to retain their crisp texture.

Peas provide a generous amount of calcium, plus carbohydrates, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C and iron.

In case you don’t eat all the peas raw, here are some recipes for cooked sugar snap peas!
