English Peas

Peas in a PodAt peak season, and delicious!

If we associate peas with frozen or canned, peas fresh from the pod are like an new vegetable. Plump and bright green, they have a tender, yet slightly crunch texture and a sweet flavor.

Fresh peas are great raw in salads and are fun to snack on. They can be tossed into a variety of dishes at the end of cooking—try floating them in miso soup or stirring them into cooked grains. They are great over pasta, in risotto, or crushed on toast. You can do as grandma did and steam up a bunch served with butter and lemon, or try one of our favorite recipes for a Ragout of Fava Beans, Peas, and Asparagus with Pecorino and Crispy Pro­sciutto.
