I didn't get to cook these, we left for Blue Mesa the next day. But they were so pretty, and I'm sure they would have been delicious. It's a lot of work to shuck peas! I just kept remembering how things would have been done "way back when." There were no grocery stores with frozen packages of peas. I live a pampered spoiled life, even in poverty, and I really hope the world doesn't fall apart and we have to go back to hunting and gathering.
