What is peas, frozen? About the ingredient peas, frozen. Including 72 recipes with peas, frozen, and where to find it.
The pea is a green, pod-shaped vegetable, widely grown as a cool season vegetable crop. Generally, peas are to be grown outdoors during the winter, not in greenhouses. Peas grow best in slightly acidic, well-drained soils.
n early times, peas were grown mostly for their dry seeds. In modern times, however, peas are usually boiled or steamed, which breaks down the cell walls and makes the taste sweeter and the nutrients more bio-available.
Fresh peas are often eaten boiled and flavored with butter and/or spearmint as a side dish vegetable. Salt and pepper are also commonly added to peas when served. Fresh peas are also used in pot pies, salads and casseroles. Pod peas are used in stir-fried dishes, particularly those in American Chinese cuisine.
Pea pods do not keep well once picked, and if not used quickly are best preserved by drying, canning or freezing within a few hours of harvest.
Peas, frozen is usually found in the frozen vegetables section or aisle of the grocery store or supermarket.
