Buying Peas

Look for: peas that are bright green and feel crisp and fresh. Pea pods should snap.

Avoid: cracked or limp pea pods.

Seasonality: Spring and summer

Storing Peas

Store peas in a plastic bag in the refrigerator up to 4 days if not using immediately.

Preparing Peas

Wash peas before shelling and cooking. To shell  peas, pinch off the ends, pull down the string on the inside, and pop out the peas. Snow peas need washing and trimming before cooking or eating raw, and sugar snap peas need the string removed from both sides.
