Look for the three most common types of peas at the grocery store to add different flavors to your meals:
- English: Also known as garden peas or green peas, these have inedible pods, so they must be shelled.
- Snow: These are delicious whole—simply trim the ends with kitchen shears. They're thinner and more delicate than sugar snaps.
- Sugar snap: A cross between English and snow peas, these have crunchy, edible pods. Snap off the stems and remove tough strings along the edges.
