Quick Answers



How do I freeze snow peas?

Snow peas, also called sugar peas, edible-podded peas, or Chinese pea pods, should be harvested when the peas are just barely visible in the pods. To freeze, blanch in boiling water for 2 minutes. Cool promptly in cold water and drain. Pack in moisture- vapor-proof containers, label, and freeze.
