Do you ever go to the farmer's market or grocery store and not know what to do with a certain fruit or vegetable?
FRESH ENGLISH PEAS
Wash the pods.
At the top of the pod, there's a little "string" sticking out as you can see in the photo above.
Grab that "string" and pull down the pod.
With your thumbs, pull open the pod.
Put your thumb at the bottom of the pod and push up towards the top of the pod to release the peas.
Do this over a bowl to catch the peas.
Place peas into a saucepan.
Cover with water.
Bring to boil and cook for 4-5 minutes.
Remove from heat and drain.
Season with salt and pepper.
