Buy peas in season this month and incorporate them into easy, tasty recipes.
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.
