From pod to pot to plate in minutes, these super-sweet organic garden peas are just the ticket for perking up grey days. Pop them from their pods (quite a meditative task if you’re in the right mood) and enjoy them in all sorts of summery risottos and pasta dishes, or briefly boil as a simple side of greens. They’re sweet enough that we even like to eat them raw, straight from the pods! The season is brief, so enjoy them while you can.

How to prepare
Pop them out of their pods then boil for just a few minutes. To turn your garden peas into the star of the plate, make pea pasta: while the pasta cooks, fry a little garlic, add peas and crème fraîche along with lemon zest. Bubble for a few minutes, then add Parmesan and a squeeze of lemon juice. Toss the sauce with the pasta and any fresh herbs you have around. Basil is especially good.
Keep in the fridge in their pods and eat within a day or two for the best flavour.
