Raw, mostly - steamed, sometimes, always sweet always great, so dont forget to eat your peas. Did you know that only lima beans are a better vegetable protein source than peas?
California is the leading producer of peas, which are available year-round. New York, South Carolina, Oregon, Idaho, Texas, New Mexico, Florida, Washington, New Jersey, and Virginia are also pea-producing states. Peas are imported into the United States from Guatemala Mexico, China, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic.
In the mid-1800s, Gregor Mendel's observations of pea pods led to the principles of Mendelian genetics, the foundation of modern genetics.
Peas are un sung heroes! Give Peas a Chance!
