Blanching Field Peas

And here is a quick and dirty field pea blanching method:

  • Shell and rinse peas. Boil about a gallon of water.
  • When water is boiling, add peas…please know, that if you add too many? Your pot boil-eth over. No bueno. Just saying.
  • Let water return to boil.
  • Blanch peas for two minutes once water returns to boil.
  • Remove from boiling water, and cool quickly. Ice water bath works well!
  • Drain well, and place into freezer bags and leave about 1/2 inch at the top. Get as much of the air out of the bag as you can prior to sealing.
  • Place bags in freezer.
