* Sweet Peas are also know as Garden Peas and English Peas. Garden peas need to be shelled before cooking and eating. Fresh peas are available in the springtime as they are a cool-season crop. Refrigerate fresh peas in their pods in a plastic bag for no more than 2 to 3 days. Shell just before using.
Other times of the year, purchase frozen peas. Peas are a popular vegetable that are very nutritious and pleasant to eat. Never, ever use store-bought canned peas!
