Local, Seasonal Peas for Kids of All Ages from...
Peas are the candy of the farmer's market. Freshly picked summer peas are so good straight out of the shell. We sit on our porch and zip peas out of the pods and pop them into our mouths. It's a treat I shared with my dad, and now that my kids share with me. When we head out to the farm to pick up our CSA share if the peas are in season our babysitter asks to come with so she can have some too!
This recipe from New England chef Gregory Griffie, is so simple and delicious. It can be served as a side dish to almost any meal and also pureed for the most well-fed babies.
