Peas

peas

It is not the easiest thing in the world to get fresh green peas, as frozen peas are so convenient and easily available. However, it is well worth the search as there is nothing like the taste of a freshly shelled pea. Luckily we also have sugar snap peas and snow peas readily available, which have edible pods making them a great source of fibre and nutrients.

Peas also play an important part in the environment as they are able to absorb nitrogen from the atmosphere and following harvest increase the amount of available nitrogen in the soil for the next crop, reducing the reliance on fertilisers. Not only are they good for us, they are good for the planet!

Pisum sativum

Fresh peas are generally only available in October and November, while Sugar Snaps and Snow Peas are grown in WA throughout the year...

Look for bright fresh peas, with no splits or cracks...

Wash and trim the ends of snow peas and sugar snap peas, the whole pod can be eaten...

Peas are an excellent source of soluble fibre and are high in Vitamin C and many other important anti-oxidants and phytochemicals...
