Peas in a Pod
Over at the LA Times Russ Parsons shares a simple way of cooking English peas.
And you know, I've always wondered. I've bought the things shucked, and boiled them too little or too long. I've bought the things in their pods, and been annoyed by the labor of freeing them.
So, what's the secret? According to Russ and his buddy Sylvia Thompson:
In a saucepan bring an inch of water to boil. Add a chunk of butter. Throw in your English peas, cover and simmer for three minutes or longer (if older and larger). Drain, salt, and eat as if they were edamame.
Very delicious indeed.
