How To Freeze Green Peas


          My freezer is always stocked up with green peas, whenever fresh peas are available, I get them and freeze them and when fresh peas are not in season, there is always store bought frozen peas. When I buy fresh ones, usually, I shell them, wash and freeze the peas as such and mostly use them up within a week or two. This time I got a lot and I wanted to freeze it in the proper way, so that it would last longer. It's a very simple method, if you have shelled the pea pods, the rest takes very little time..


Need To Have

  • Fresh Shelled Peas




Method


          Wash the shelled peas, boil some water and add the peas. Wait for 2 minutes, you'll see the peas floating to the top, then switch off.


          Immediately drain the peas, add them to a bowl of ice cold water ( this stops the cooking process) and leave it for 2 minutes.


          Drain the peas, pat dry and freeze it.


Note
The time the peas stay in the boiling water and the time they are in the cold water is same, only 2 minutes.
If the freezer is working continously ( without any power cuts ) then the peas should be good for at least 2 to 3 months, they say it'll stay fresh even for a year, but I have not kept it so long.
