Shelling Peas - 10 June 2011
I have just spent nearly 3 hours harvesting and preparing to store my first crop of peas, I thought I would harvest them earlier so they are in 'Garden Pea'
form instead of letting them grow to full maturity, and having 'Marrowfat' peas. This was mistake number one. Yes the peas are sweeter, and are delicious when eaten
direct from the pod. But shelling the damn things, is just a waste of your life.
The rest of my peas needless to say will be of the marrowfat variety, where by they are left on the plant until fully ripe, then dried and shaken from their pods.
The down side being that they are really then only good for 'mushy' peas, or pea soup. Ah well who likes garden peas anyway!
