Crisp Fresh Sugar Snap Peas right out of the garden or from your local produce stand are very hard to beat! I am blessed to have a very green thumbed husband & these were picked today! Combine the peas with yummy potatoes & fresh onion & parsley & your eating the best side dish you could ever ask for! Best yet it is easy to make!
1 Quart Fresh Sugar Snap Peas or use Sugar Peas, Wash & pull off any strings.
6 Red Skinned Potatoes washed & quartered or use small New Potatoes enough for 5 people, just wash those.
1 Onion peeled & sliced
3 Sprigs of Fresh Parsley Chopped
3 TBS Butter.
Bring enough water to cover the potatoes to a boil. Add about 1 TSP. Salt. Add potatoes & simmer until tender about 30 minutes. Drain. In the pot you used for the potatoes add the butter, parsley & onion & simmer until tender. Now add those peas & cook just until they turn a bright green about 3 minutes. Add the drained potatoes & toss cook for about 2 minutes & SERVE! You may add pepper to taste! Serves 5
