Precious and fleeting, peas occupy a tiny window in time in late spring and early summer. The minute heat sets in they're finished, but until then they are one of the most delectable treats in the vegetable world. Little need be done except to cook them as soon as you can. Unlike today's corn, their sugars turn to starch once picked. ... They are so special and their season is so brief that they beg for simple treatments.
We'll eat them this way.
