Did You Know?
Only about 5% of peas are sold fresh! Most of those are snap peas, so go out and get yourself a fresh, healthy snack.
Snap peas are an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of vitamin K.
Shopping and Storage
Try to choose vibrant, bright peas that are firm and free of spots and scratches.
Snap peas will be sweetest right after purchased, so try to use quickly. They can be stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to two days.
Snap peas can be eaten plain and raw, and are also commonly use in stir-fry recipes. They are great in salads or as a healthy side dish.
