  • Comments: With Sugar Snap sanp peas you get to eat the entire pod with the peas nestled inside. The pods are juicy, crisp, sweet, and crunchy. Peak achievement in flavor. Stringless 3 inch pods keep their rich color and crunch after cooking. Try boiling snap peas for about 3 minutes and refreshing them in ice water to set their bright color, and then use them in a stir-fry with other vegetables. They can also be cooked on their own with butter and herbs or put into cold preparations like pasta salads. You can also prepare peas by blanching them for no more than a minute in boiling water. Drain them and cool them promptly in cold water, and they are ready to be added to salads and pasta dishes.
