Sugar Snap Peas
Often served in salads or eaten whole. They may also be stir-fried or steamed. Before being eaten, mature snap pea pods may need to be "stringed," which means the membranous string running along the top of the pod from base to tip is removed.
Over-cooking the pods will make them come apart.
Sugar Snap Peas differ from the English Peas slightly as they are less fibrous and can be eaten when young. They have a subtle sweet taste, which can be eaten with a meal or as a snack. Sugar snaps can be eaten whole and, as well as being convenient and easier to prepare,the vegetable is
high in vitamins and minerals that are particularly
helpful for the heart. 
Minerals:  Iron is bountiful within sugar snap peas and the mineral helps with blood cell formation and can prevent anemia and fatigue.  Enjoy the goodness this week! OTV
