Give Peas A Chance

The tender vine tips, leaves and tendrils of English Peas, Snow Peas, and Sugar Snap Peas are delicious raw or cooked, and taste much like the pods. Try them as a plate garnish, in salads, or chopped into an omelet or stir fry. The variety called 'Novella' produces vast numbers of tendrils instead of leaves, and folks grow it to harvest the tendrils with scissors. The blooms of all pea varieties are sweet and tasty too, but of course each one you eat will never make a pea pod to harvest. John
