Snow peas

Snow peas Also Known asMange touts, Sugar peas, Chinese pea pods.Snow Peas are edible podded peas with the best features of snap beans (tender and crispy) and garden peas (sweet and meaty). The plant grows very well in slightly cold climates. Seeds are sown in early spring and fall. The plant begins to produce peas quickly and in large quantity, about 70 days after sowing. Edible pods mature quickly and should be picked for vegetable use when young. The snow pea is a legume, more specifically a variety of pea eaten whole in its pod while still unripe. These are all flat-podded peas which are hand picked and are the kind that is always eaten pod and all. The secret of really enjoying this vegetable is to pick the pods while they are on the young side. All you have to do is to top and tail them. A truly wonderful vegetable if fresh; frozen snow peas simply miss out on all the qualities of their fresh cousins. Snow peas are similar to fresh green peas, but much more delicate. The pod is the main attraction crisp, tender and bright green.
