Have a safe and great one.
I hope you find this info on peas, as interesting as I did!
Pods that are cold, green, and not to fat (large peas are old and tough).
You may find snow peas (almost pea less pods that are an Oriental specialty) or sugar snap peas, both of which are eaten shells and all, raw as well as cooked.
Approximately 2 pounds of garden peas in the pod will feed 4 people (1 pound yields about 1 cup of peas).
For snow peas and sugar snap peas,1 pound will serve 4 people.
