Smashed Minty Spring Peas and More Tasty Ways to Enjoy This Spring Veg

May 16, 2015

The peas are peeking out of the garden, making us giddy with early spring harvest delight. It's always such a rush to see that they are actually growing, when it was frighteningly cold as they were planted. Now, we are hopeful for a great garden season, and a long list of tasty ways to enjoy our bounty. 

If you have never had fresh spring peas, do try to get some. They are bright, sweet, and plump; perfect as a side dish or to perk up any recipe. We love them plain with a bit of mint, or as little pops of color and taste in our spring recipes. Check these out!
