Eat these peas in the pods. They are best just after they are harvested before the sugars turn into starch. They are a good source of vitamins A, C, K, and the B's, along with being high in vegetable protein, carbohydrates, and fiber.
• Use as soon as possible. Refrigerate in a plastic bag for 3-4 days. Storing peas will cause them to lose some of their sweetness and crispness.
• Snap peas need stringing. Snap of the stem tip and pull downward to remove the string
• Cook quickly, no more than 2 minutes. Add butter or serve plain.
• Add to stir-fried or chilled marinated vinaigrette style salads.
