Pea - Snap

Pea - Snap

Description

Bright green and sweet, string-less sugar snap peas have a crisp, edible pod. Resembling miniature versions of common green pea pods, sugar snap peas are not only tender and entirely edible, but quite sweet and juicy as well. Snap peas, like all other peas, are pod fruits. An edible-podded pea is similar to an English, pea, but the pod is less fibrous, and edible when young. Pods of the edible-podded pea, including snap peas, do not have a membrane and do not open when ripe.

Applications/Techniques

Often served in salads, pastas, vegetable ragouts, or eaten whole. They may also be stir-fried, sautéed, steamed, or blanched.
