Sweet, Sweet Sugar Snap Peas

My dad’s garden had yielded lots of sugar snap peas.  Sugar snap peas are a great early crop, he planted the seeds in April and they have been enjoying the peas for a few weeks now.

I plan on doing this next year because I love these things!  The minion and I love to snack on them raw, but you can also cook them.  Either way you need to snap the ends off and string them.  You can eat the pods on these however.

Throw them in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for about 5 minutes or until they are the desired texture for you.  You can season them after you take them out of the microwave but they really don’t need anything, they have a lot of sweet, earthy flavor on their own.
