Sweet and great tasting with a satisfying crunch, sugar snap peas are a great snack when eaten raw.
Our sweet and crunchy sugar snap peas can be eaten raw in salads, steamed or added to stir fries, risottos and soups. To prepare, break the end and strip it down and it will take the string out. Take the string off each side and then you can steam or boil (for 3-5 minutes). You also can eat them in a stirfry or raw. If you do cook them, don’t cook them for too long, only a couple of minutes. They’re good tossed in butter or mix with blanched runner beans with a tahini and yoghurt dressing.
Store sugar snap peas in a plastic bag for up to three days.
Sugar snap peas are the result of crossing English peas with snow peas.
