I have been canning for about 30 years with my grandmother. We always canned our peas until a few years ago. A friend of mine told me about a QUICK and EASY was to put up peas. My grandmother no longer uses a pressure cooker to can peas. She prefers to put hers in the freezer using this recipe. Hope you like it as much as we do.

How to Make Fresh Peas from the freezer


  1. Pick the desired amount of peas you would like to put in the freezer. I live on a farm so we have about 16 five gallon buckets of peas at first picking and then usually about 8 five gallon buckets for two more pickings.
  2. Have them shelled or you shell them by hand. I hope I never have to shell another pea again. A pea sheller is this gal's best friend!
  3. Pick through your peas to get the trash and wormy peas out. *DO NOT PUT WATER ON THE PEAS! VERY IMPORTANT.
  4. Once you have looked through your peas, put them in a freezer bag (quart or gallon, depending on how much peas your family eats at one setting), get the bag air tight and put in freezer.
  5. When you are ready for fresh peas, take a bag out of the freezer, wash them, and put them in a pot. Cover modestly with water and bring to a boil. Boil your peas until they become the desired texture. Make sure you keep enough water in the pot that covers the peas so they don't cook down and stick to the pan. I usually boil mine for about 45 minutes because I don't like my peas real crunchy. I add bacon grease and salt for taste.
  6. Now enjoy the fresh taste of peas all year around.
