HOME MADE FROZEN PEAS


Fresh peas are seasonal vegetables. Frozen peas are easy to make and can be freezed for future use & needs. Generally frozen vegetables can be used from one harvest till the other season. But I finish it within six months.

This is a very simple way of making frozen peas at home, and gobbled throughout the year.

INGREDIENTS:

Fresh peas - 3 kg.
Collander
Ice water
Big vessels - 2 (One for ice water and one for hot water)

METHOD:

Select fresh and firm peas. Wash the peas well. De-string and shell the peas. Wash well again.



WORK IN BATCHES HEREAFTER. KEEP THE ICE WATER READY.

Heat a pan of water and allow it to boil.



Now add the peas to this and allow it to boil for just one minute.

When the peas starts to float on top, drain through a collander and immediately transfer it to the ice water pan. OR run under cold tap water till cool. Spread in a clean cloth and cool it to room temperature. Repeat the process with all the batches. Allow it to dry or pat it dry.

Fill the peas in a ziplock bag, approximately one or two cups. DO NOT PACK IT TIGHTLY. Seal the bags. Store the bags in the freezer.

HOME MADE FROZEN PEAS IS READY.
