How to Freeze Peas


This method applies to your sugar snap, snow, and shelled peas


If using shelling peas, remove all peas from their shells.  If you are using sugar snap or snow peas, snap the stem off and carry the “vein” with it.   Bring a stock pot of water to a boil and slow to a simmer.  Drop your rinsed peas into the water and let simmer for 2 minutes.  Strain out and transfer immediately to ice cold water to stop the cooking.  Strain out of the cold water and lay out on a towel to dry before packing into resealable bags.  Pack loosely so that you can grab just a handful out of the freezer as needed.  You’ll be so glad you froze some come winter!
