Snow peas are a good source of fiber and protein and are popular in both East Asian and European cuisines.  We love cooking them simply- stir frying them in butter and salt and eating them with our fingers.  Leave them on a little longer for blackened snow peas, or add cream for creamed snow peas.

Peas love a crowd, sow 1" apart along as soon as the ground can be worked in spring. Plant 1" deep at the base of a trellis such as a fence or net strung between two posts as vines grow tall. Plants will bear longer if planted early and pods are picked regularly before peas begin drying.
