The Technique

Peas have a lovely toothsome texture when cooked just so. In order to determine if they are ready, the best method is to simply taste the peas. They shouldn’t be too firm nor too soft. Immediately toss hot peas with butter & seasonings.

When preparations are to be made for cold salad applications, allow it to cool completely. Spread the peas over a half sheet pan & refrigerate about 30 minutes before proceeding with specific recipe instructions.  

Peas may be added directly to soups. If integrating them into one of your favorite recipes, add during the last few minutes of the cooking time. The longer they are heated, the peas will loose their bright color so keep that in mind.
