  • About


  • 2 kg (4 lb 8 oz) baby spring peas in the pod
  • 80 pea blossoms
  • 16 carrot blossom florets
  • 64 white bean blossoms
  • 24 agretti sprigs


Shell the peapods to yield 800 g (1 lb 12 oz) peas. Set aside until required.

Trim the pea blossoms to the base of the blossom, leaving on just a couple of millimetres of green stem. Set half aside to be deep-fried, and reserve half to be used fresh.

Rinse the carrot and bean blossoms and the agretti in cold water, dry gently and set aside.
