How to Freeze Sugar Snap Peas (Without blanching!)

How to Freeze Sugar Snap Peas (Without blanching!)

Well it’s February, Winter and extra chilly.  We’re talking 2 winter coats, tights under jeans kinda chilly.  Over the Winter we’ll still be growing broccoli, cauliflower, kale and brussels sprouts under the greenhouse but I need some enthusiasm for the greens in the Spring.  It seems like just yesterday we were planting and picking the sugar snap peas, so that got me dreaming of Spring…

Sugar Snap Pea Planting 2014

We always grow sugar snap peas twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall.  The issue is always getting them planted early enough so they could grow their full height before the enemy hits: frost.  It’s about cheering on all the veggies to get growing before we have to protect them (and they go on their tropical but yet still chilly vacation under the greenhouse).

In this post I wanted to get you ready for sugar snap pea season because we need a little cheer in these dreary days.  Maybe once the garden season starts and you are picking your sugar snap peas work will become really busy so you’ll have a hard time keeping up.  Or maybe you’re at the grocery store and you see a great deal on Sugar Snap Peas and would like to stock up.    I don’t really want to set time aside to blanch these peas and dry them, so I got to thinking about how well the bok choy freezes without blanching, could this be done for the peas?  The answer is a big yes!
