This heat might spell the end for the snow peas, so if you had a recipe you were thinking of making, but hadn’t got around to yet, these might just be the peas to use. Last night’s rain has smooshed a lot of the blossoms on the peas – on the yellow peas this looks brown but a quick rinse will remove them. Did you know that most of the snow peas in the grocery stores are grown in Guatemala? How can something be called fresh when it has traveled so far? Our peas were hand-picked this morning and the furthest they will have traveled is 40 miles. That’s about as fresh as you can get without growing them yourself.
