Blanched Sugar Snap Peas


Sugar snap peas are a sweet and crispy cross between snow peas and garden peas. This technique for blanching ensures your peas stay bright green and perfectly tender crisp.

1 teaspoon salt
1 pound sugar snap peas
about 4 cups


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.

The person is right; 5 min prep time is not clearly indicating the cook time

The instructions are clearly marked above the ingredients.

Five minutes is WAY too long. 2 mins max. Probably only a minute will do the tril

Wow, people are super angry over this recipe! Take it easy. If this makes you mad I can’t even imagine something important.

Omg so rude over blanching snap peas … really ?

If you boil them for 5 minutes, they will be mush. Boil for 1-2 minutes. I usually check after 1 minute. I blanch them often for a salad that I make.

What a childish bunch of rants. I'd hate to cut you off accidentally while driving. Give Joy - Get Joy.
