Peas, please!

The peas are ready to be picked!!


 My Roma tomatoes don’t look too bad either.

Now that I have fresh peas from the garden, I have decided to try this recipe.

Simple, Perfect Peas with Butter and Salt

Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. While the water is heating, remove the peas from their pods and place in a bowl. When the water reaches a boil, add some salt and the peas. You are just going to cook them for a very short time. Don’t leave the stove. Somewhere between ten and thirty seconds. You want them just barely tender, so they still pop in your – mouth, no mushy overcooked peas please. Quickly drain. Return the peas to a bowl with a dollop of butter and a sprinkling of salt.  I got this recipe from www.101cooks.com.  They have tons of good-looking recipes!!

I can’t wait to try this.  I will report back to you on this for sure.

More later………………Sally
