A few weeks ago, I noticed fresh peas in the pod at our grocery store. I was about to buy some, but I wasn’t sure how much to buy. I’d always used frozen peas. Well, the conversion factor is roughly a pound of peas in the pod to a cup of shelled peas. This batch was generous, with two or more cups from 1.25 pounds.
Fresh peas are great, so “double the peas” is like doubling the bacon or the chocolate. Not a problem.
I used fresh peas in the pasta last night, and I’ll keep using them as long as they are available.
