Who doesn't love the sweet flavor and crisp texture of a sugar snap pea? Unlike English peas, the entire pod is meant to be eaten. However, be sure to snap the corners off or cut them off with a knife and pull out the strings before cooking the sugar snap peas. This classic springtime treat is a good source of vitamin C and complex carbohydrates and is delicious stir-fried, chopped up in a salad, or even eaten as a snack on the go!
STORAGE: Store your unwashed sugar snap peas in a plastic container in the fridge for 3-5 days. Alternatively, you can easily freeze sugar snap peas for up to a year!
