What is it?

A variety of pea that’s eaten pod and all while the pods are still thin and tender, snow peas make a frequent appearance in stir-fries and other Asian dishes. They cook very quickly and take well to blanching, steaming, and of course stir-frying,

Snow peas pair well with scallions, toasted saesame seeds, ginger, shellfish, and rich nut oils.

How to choose:

Choose dark green, dense-looking peas with no signs of drying or cracking.

How to prep:

Trim the peas by breaking off the stem end and pulling off the tough “string” that runs across the the top of the pod.
