Ingredients

1 teaspoon salt
1 pound sugar snap peas
about 4 cups
*

Directions

In a medium pot, bring 6 cups of water to the boil. Meanwhile prepare a large bowl of ice water to shock the sugar snap peas, locking in the color and to prevent over-cooking.

Add the salt and peas to the boiling water and cook until tender-crisp.

Using a slotted spoon transfer the sugar snap peas to the ice water. Drain and pat dry.

The sugar snap peas can be prepared this way up to an hour in advance for use in another recipe.

"until tender crisp". What a stupid recipe. Could you not just say 5 minutes or ten minutes, like in a normal intelligent recipe?

If you look above, it clearly states to cook for 5 minutes.
