From Diane I’m a pickle addict, and it’s an understatement to say I can be impatient if I have to wait for a batch of fresh pickles to be ready. So I created a recipe that is quick but doesn’t sacrifice flavor or texture. When I’m in a hurry to make an appetizer plate of cheese and charcuterie for a party, this pickled peas recipe is the answer. The fresh mint and lemon juice quickly season and pickle the peas to a tangy and flavorful crisp. Even without the cheese platter, these pickles are a satisfying snack, bright and full of crunch. They’re also delicious stuffed in your favorite sandwich in place of regular cucumber pickles.
Depending on the size of your pickling container, you may need to make extra pickling brine to top it off.
