Every year when the peas were beginning to be ready to harvest Mom would start talking about this dish. It was the first thing she made with her new peas.

Its simple but so good with those tender new peas. We always had New Potatoes and Peas, every year. But only when the peas were first ready.

You can use frozen peas but Mom would have called this a sin. hehe
