Peas! Some like it hot...... and some like it cold!



Lettuce leaves [I used iceberg, but other lettuce can be interesting.]
2 cups freshly shelled green peas ("From the pod to the pot!" as the saying goes, no matter how you prepare fresh peas) or 10 oz frozen peas.
1/2 tsp salt
Dash each of pepper, nutmeg and sugar
1/4 cup butter

Cold... Cashew Peas

3 boxes of frozen peas that have been thawed, or the equivalent
6 slices of crisp fried bacon
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 cup cashews
8 oz of sour cream



Line bottom and side of a heavy saucepan with washed lettuce leaves. Add peas. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, nutmeg and sugar. Add butter. Cover with more lettuce leaves. Cook covered over low heat about 15-20 minutes, or until tender. Discard leaves. Serves 4.

I don't know if I liked them as a kid, but I love 'em now, especially when I can buy them in the pods for that little window of time at local fresh markets. But either way, fresh or frozen, try this neat little trick with peas and see if you agree they taste fresh and very springy!

Cashew Peas

Mix frozen peas with 6 slices of crumbled crisp fried bacon. Add the juice of one half lemon and salt/pepper to taste. When ready to serve. mix with one 8 oz container of sour cream and one cup more or less of cashews. Do not add the cream and cashews until ready to serve or the cream will soften the cashews. This recipe is excellent for brunch!
