Sugar Snap Peas

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Plump, curved sugar snap peas are entirely edible.  Break off the stem end and gently pull off the string along the inner side before eating.  Sugar snap peas are delicious eaten raw or cooked. The trick is not to overcook them.  An easy way to cook them is to blanch them for 30 seconds and then stir fry just long enough to heat them up.  This helps to retain the crispness and the sweet flavor.  Look for fat and full pods with a uniform green color.  Store then in a perforated plastic bag in the refrigerator and cook as soon as possible.
