Fresh Snow Peas ~ 1 lb
Today I picked over one pound of fresh crisp snow peas from my garden. Even with my homemade twine trellis for the snow peas to climb, the heavy pea pods were making the tall plants fall over. I picked the peas that were ready and then spent some time securing the plants to the trellis with some of that stretchy green garden tape. I need to make sure I don't wait so long to pick more snow peas. I know that I need to pick them every few days to keep the peas producing more edible crunchy pods.
I like them raw, cold and crisp in salads or just directly out of the refrigerator as a snack. I also enjoy eating them in one of my quick stir fry dinners as I did tonight. See the photo below.
