Tender, green peas appear in all sorts of spring dishes, from pasta primavera and stir-fries to salads. If you haven’t tried sweet, crisp sugar snap peas yet, you’re in for a real treat. Sugar snaps are a cross between traditional English peas and snow peas. Available fresh in the spring and fall (and frozen year-round), sugar snap peas are entirely edible, "pod and all," and are equally delicious raw or cooked. They also make elegant appetizers, whether stuffed with cream cheese or used as crudités with creamy dips, and they're ideal for all kinds of Asian-style skillet dishes with other spring produce, such as asparagus and green onions.
