Featured Video - Peas
There are many varieties of peas - fresh and dried. Dried peas are said to be the oldest cultivated vegetable. The English favour the green pea while the French enjoy the snow pea (or mange-tout). In Australia we enjoy them all. The green pea is a round seed of the legume family that grows in pods on a bush or vine. They are sweet and crisp when fresh. Today it's rare to find fresh garden peas in their pods - if you can find them grab them and enlist some willing helper to get on with the job of shelling them.
