Welcome to our video series Homegrown, Homemade. We’ve teamed up with Fine Gardening to show gardeners and cooks of all skill levels how get the most out of their crops from seed to plate. In this series with Fine Gardening‘s Danielle Sherry, Danielle shows me how to grow and harvest peas. Then, we move into the kitchen, where I show Danielle how to make the most of her homegrown peas.
Episode Four: How to Prep Peas
Shelling peas have a tendency to taste starchy if you don’t prepare and eat them the day they’re picked. But there are a few things you can do to preserve their freshness and flavor. In this episode, I show Danielle how to blanch and freeze peas for later use.
