Snap Pea Season Begins


These edible podded or snap peas are what I grow instead of snow peas.  They last longer on the vine without becoming tough.  The seed catalogs have them listed as Sugar Snap or Sugar Ann and they are sensational when stir fried.  I picked a quart of them yesterday and had a lovely stir-fry lunch of the peas with sliced jicama (a good substitute for water chestnut), sweet red bell peppers, onions and garlic.  I added dried jalapeno and kept it simple using gyoza dipping sauce to bind it.  For a dinner, you could add a protein like chicken or salmon.

    There is nothing like the taste of fresh-off-the-vine snap peas. Yum!
