How long will peas stay "fresh" for?

Post  Ryley on 8/7/2010, 9:36 pm

Last weekend my mother-in-law sent home a big shopping bag full of pea pods for us. Welllllllllllll......they may or may not have sat on our back step for a full week before I remembered they were there Sad

I shelled them this morning, and the odd one was wrinkly, but the rest seemed nice and full. I tossed the old wrinkly ones, but do you think the rest will be ok? I was going to freeze them, but I wonder if week old peas will freeze nicely?!

Any advice/suggestions? (Aside from remembering the peas are on the back step next time :confused:

Peas get starchier as they sit. Eat one raw and see what you think. Either way, as long as they aren't black or dry they should be fine. Cooking them stops enzyme action so if you blanch and then dry you should be able to freeze them.

They were home grown? They're probably still way fresher than the ones from the grocery store.

Well, these peas didn't make it to the blanching phase...I made a huge batch of cream peas and brought it along to a friend's bbq. *YUM*

I will have another go at freezing them next weekend, and hopefully in a more timely manner!
