Garden Pearls

June 28, 2010


This is the time. Buy pods of fresh English peas at the market, shuck them and extract pretty green pearls. Next, heat a pan over high-ish heat with a splash of olive oil and tumble in your bowlful of jade peas. Toss a few times, they will sizzle and spit a little. Sprinkle some sea salt over and eat hot right from the pan for your 3 o’ clock on a Sunday snack. It’s hard to believe, if you haven’t tasted, how good these are. Crisp, sweet, salty and fresh.
