Veggie of the Week: Snap Pea pt. 4

Preparation and Serving:
– To prepare snap peas, wash the pods in cold water, and pat dry
– Before eating, snap pea pods may need to be “stringed,” which means to trim the stem end and remove the stringy fiber on either side of the pods
– Over-cooking the pods will make them come apart
– You can cook the whole pod just for a few minutes in boiling water, and serve with dipping sauce as an appetizer
– Snap peas can be served in salads, omelots, soups, stews, eaten whole, stir-fried or steamed, stuffed, batter fried, used as an alternative to french fries
