Peas Please!!!

Steamed Sugar Snap Peas with Coarse Sea Salt

Sugar Snap Peas in the spring is one of my favorite garden veggies. I grew some this spring and have been snacking on them for the last month or so, fresh off the vine. Due to the rain we have had here, I have not been able to get into the garden for a few days now. Finally this evening I spent some time in the garden (even though I was sinking up a few inches in my boots) to “sucker” the tomato plants and pick Sugar Snap Peas. Most of the peas were overripe and needed to be shelled and none of them were fresh enough for eating raw, but were great for steaming.

I shelled a batch and got these beautiful fresh green peas that I will cook tomorrow.

The remaining peas were steamed and sprinkled with coarse sea salt for eating fresh out of the shell just like edamame. How delish!

I hope you have the chance to eat some fresh Sugar Snap Peas this season before they are gone, which will be very soon! Keep your eye out for them at your local Farmer’s Market this weekend which is probably your last opportunity.

Til’ next time…
