peas please

Pea season has officialy come to a close in the garden. Yesterday I picked off all the remaining pods, and then pulled the vines out and sent them on a one way trip to the compost pile.

This was the first year that I planted a 'shelling' pea as opposed to the 'sugar snap' or 'snow' varieties, and I have to say I was really pleased. It was easy to enjoy them on the fly, as they were quite tasty eaten directly from the pod while working in the garden.

Also, cooked in some boiling water, and served with a bit of butter and salt they were a real treat. After I shelled and washed this last bunch I put them in a ziplock bag and stuck them in the freezer to save for some future meal. I am thinking of trying this pea pesto...
