Can anybody make frozen green peas taste good?



They're so cheap but they're so awful. What a pity.

Wha???

Frozen peas are one of the more forgiving frozen veggies.

Toss some in boiling water with garlic cloves until tender, strain, then apply an immersion blender with freshly chopped mint. It's one of my favorite sides with a thick pork chop.

Green peas? Like English peas? Bacon grease and salt.

Mint? Never thought of that. I WILL try it, though, because I've always felt guilty about not liking frozen green peas.

I really like canned LeSeur Early June Peas, though. Go figure.

re: Can anybody make frozen green peas taste good?


Most folks in S. La were raised on the Le Suer peas, so that's what we've come to think peas should taste like. Hell, I like them myself.

Guess what? That's not what peas taste like. I read once where a famous chef said there's no need to ever try to seek out or procure fresh peas, because the frozen ones are so close to those and more often than not, much "fresher" because they are frozen right when picked, and none you can typically buy fresh will be as good.

- Peel two taters and cut into chunks.
- Add peas to pot,
- Add water
- Add half teaspoon salt
- Add half teaspoon sugar
- Add Tablespoon veg oil
- Add Taters
Cook until Taters done
- Make fish sticks on cookie sheet in oven follow directions
- Make whole kernal corn same way as peas except no taters and use butter not oil.
- Make Kraft Mac and cheese in blue box
- Make Ice Tea

Perfect Grandkids Dinner!

Substitute frozen chicken nuggets for fish sticks for alternate meal plan

Substitute frozen steak fingers for third alternate meal plan.

Commence three Nanner dance of joy

I usually cook them briefly in some chicken or vegetable broth and they taste good.
