That looks & sounds absolutely delicious!
Yum yum.

What happened to that bucket of peas?

Olive said...

Golly, gosh, you are the fastest little Veggie Gnome around !!
The peas are all tucked away in the freezer, for another day. Took me over 2 hours to shell them all.

Do you blanch them before freezing? Or freeze them fresh out of the pod?

Olive said...

They were frozen fresh. Bagged into meal size portions and put in a plastic box for safe keeping. This method has worked well in the past, so I hope it works well for long term freezing. You will hear me crying if it doesn't work. They are just sooo sweet and tender. One more pick and then what is left will be seeds for next year.
