How to choose and store fresh peas
Choose small, very fresh peas.
For the best flavour, choose small peas, which are younger, sweeter, and more tender than large ones. Pick them when their pods are firm, green, and not yellow or wilting. As large peas are less versatile, they need to be cooked longer and slowly.
Use them quickly or freeze them.
Peas have a short shelf life, so it’s not recommended to store them – in their pods or shelled - for very long. Store pods in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator and use them within a couple of days. Once they’re shelled, the best way to store peas is to freeze them. First blanch them for a minute or two in boiling salted water and then shock them in an ice-water bath until cool, to help maintain their bright colour. Drain and freeze them in zip-top bags. They will keep for five to six months.
Don’t throw those pods away—make broth.
Use the empty pods for making a simple pea broth, which you can use to enhance the flavour of soups, stews, and braises, including the ones here. To make the broth, put the pods in a large pot and cover with water by at least 1 inch. Add a pinch of salt and a roughly chopped onion. Simmer for about 25 minutes, strain, and discard the pods. The broth will keep for two days in the refrigerator and for about a month in the freezer.
Celeriac has to be the unsung hero of the vegetable world, knobbly, odd-shaped and too often ignored. With a subtle, celery-like flavour and nutty overtones, you can mash and serve it with your festive roast or in soups or purees. A great alternative to s
With an earthy, sweet flavour and long tuberous root, it comes as no surprise that the parsnip is closely related to the carrot. This fleshy tuber is chock-full of vitamins, essential minerals and dietary fibre.
A sweet alternative to the regular Russet or Yukon gold, this humble root lends itself to a plethora of different cooking methods. Great as a casserole dish or simply steamed, this spud is no dud when it comes to health-boosting benefits.
Chilli is also known as chilli peppers. The substances that give chilli their intensity when ingested or applied topically are capsaicin and several related chemicals, collectively called capsaicinoids.
An apple cucumber gets its name because of its resemblance to a green apple. It has a crispy, juicy flesh, very sweet taste, and can be eaten without peeling the skin off. After it ripens, it develops soft prickles or spines that are white.
Black Knight carrots are readily distinguishable by their ink stained skin with variegations of orange and ivory blushing through from the root's core. The flesh's colour is a contrasting warm yellow.
Higher in beta carotene, and vitamins C and A than its green counterpart, red oak lettuce also provides a good proportion of fibre, folate and minerals. Enjoy this attractive, frilly leaf in salads, sandwiches and side dishes.
