Peas in Pods—a simple and excellent accompaniment to baked salmon
By the Editors of Sunset Books and Sunset Magazine from Sunset Quick and Easy Cook Book
2 pounds unshelled peas
2 tablespoons water
Makes 4 servings
Rinse peas; don’t pat dry. Place peas in a 5-quart pan; add water, cover, and place over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring well every 5 minutes, until peas are tender to bite (about 15 minutes; shell a few to test). Pour into a warm serving bowl.
Shell peas at the table. Or, to eat straight from pods, hold a whole pod at one end and put it in your mouth. Bite lightly at the end you’re holding, and then pull pod through your teeth –peas pop into your mouth.
