GOOD STUFF TO KNOW ABOUT SNOW & SNAP PEAS
We grow two types of peas: snap and snow; neither of which are what most think of peas in a pod (the shelling type). We feel like those type of peas known as “shell peas” are just two laborious and we prefer to grow a pea that you can eat whole: pod and all. With the snap peas, you do need to remove the “string” which you can easily do by peeling back the stem part of the pea and pull the sting away from and off of the pea. Snow peas don’t need this treatment and can go straight into any dish, stem and all.
Store your peas in a plastic bag and try to use up in a week. We go varieties of peas that are known for their sweetness and not necessarily for their shelf life.
