TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Sweet and fresh-tasting, with a gorgeous green color, peas are an incredibly versatile vegetable. Whether on their own, or as part of a dish, they add a great complexity—both in flavor and texture.
Green peas are also an incredible source of iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and fiber. It’s also rich in Vitamin B1, which helps heart function. Green peas are also a great way to introduce vegetables to babies. Because they’re sweet in flavor, a simple puree would go a long way with little tastebuds.
Frozen green peas are already blanched, which is why boiling or steaming them usually results in sad-tasting peas. Here’s a great way to make the most of your frozen green peas:
- • On a medium skillet on medium heat, place your green peas, some butter, minced garlic, and sugar (don’t worry—this won’t sweeten the peas, only enhance their natural sweetness)
- • Cook, stirring occasionally, until the butter is melted, and the peas are heated through, around 5 to 7 minutes.
- • Transfer onto a serving plate, and season with salt and pepper. Serve! This is great as a side dish!
Green peas are also great to put into pasta dishes, salads, even fried rice!
GIVE PEAS A CHANCE
It was in 1926 that Pierre and Benoit Bonduelle turned an old barn into a cannery. It housed four pea shellers, and produced about 600 boxes of peas a day. They had a good momentum going. That is, until 1939, when the building was requisitioned by the French army, and damaged from the war.
It wasn’t until 1945 that they could resume operations. And in 1947, Bonduelle as a brand was born. With business booming and advertising flying off, Bonduelle became a name in the canned pea business.
It was in 1968 that they ventured into frozen food, something that was already popular in the United States, but was relatively unknown in France. It was a success.
Bonduelle is now a giant in the frozen food industry, with quality never straying and still held at the forefront of their production.
Immediately store frozen vegetables in your freezer. The temperature must read -18C or 0F to keep the quality. Unopened, it will last 24 months.
Once opened, take what you need, and return the rest into the freezer immediately, sealing the bag tight and well, and pressing out the air. Ideally (especially when bag is not resealable), transfer your frozen vegetables into freezer-safe resealable bags, and press out the air before re-storing. It will last 8-10 months.
