Sugar Snap Peas
In the midwest, sugar snap peas are IN season. They are at the farmer's market, and in my garden. Nutritional Benefits: Source of vitamin K, C, B6, Folate, Iron, Beta-Carotene. They are low in calories and high in fiber. I've listed below a couple of the ways we eat sugar snap peas, but for both of these, you must remove the stem and the "string". If you don't, they will be so tough. It will be like eating fishing line. Method 1: (pictured above) String peas, sprinkle with dark sesame oil, sesame seeds, and kosher salt. Method 2: String peas, saute' in a little butter, garlic (ginger also works well). Cook only 3-5 minutes. Do not over cook. They should still have some life to them.
