“Beautiful on a holiday buffet but good at any time. Use smaller peppers if you want smaller servings of the peas. I quite freguently leave the peas whole and serve them in the blanched pepper halves. If you do this add the rosemary and orange rind to the water when you boil the peas and add a dab of butter to the peas when serving.”

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 12 lbs frozen peas
