Bless Her Lil' Pea Pickin' Heart! :)

This is my lovely daughter helping me with the snow peas
We love them straight out of the garden--Yum!

Unfortunately, it has gotten very hot, and they are ending prematurely. :(

If you've never had snow peas, you don't know what you're missing! The difference between them and regular peas? They are eaten in the pod.
 (All you have to do is remove the strings--that's what Bri was doing)
Then, we steamed ours just a bit--don't want to overcook these tender legumes.
Btw, it is one of the earliest known cultivated plants in the world.

1 cup of these snow peas have 10% of your daily fiber
98% of Vitamin C
21% Vitamin A
11% of Iron
4% of Calcium

Oh, and we sometimes just toss them raw on top of our salad too!
