Today I’m celebrating the humble garden pea.
For me, peas are a quick and easy dinner staple because they’re healthy, delicious and I always have them in the freezer. However, with all this convenience, it’s easy to forget their origins and the journey that they’ve been on to get to your plate.
July is peak pea harvesting season and it’s at around this time that you can find peas in pods more commonly in the shops. If you’ve never eaten freshly podded peas before, you are totally missing out, they are unbelievably sweet and delicious.
