Fresh peas

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Fresh peas, also known as English peas, are an early summer delicacy. Those varieties sold in the pod need to be shelled before use. Frozen peas, including the variety called petite peas, may be substituted.

To shell fresh peas:
Break the stem and pull down to remove the string. Open the pod by squeezing the seams. Run a finger along the inside of the pod to pop out the peas.
