While there is nothing to compare with eating fresh peas at their peak season, for year-round enjoyment there is nothing quite as convenient as frozen peas. Rapidly stir-fried and briefly steam-cooked, these peas are firm and tender, each one a burst of sweetness. Unlike fresh, you must not use the tiny frozen peas—they are too fragile; they tend to be creamy rather than slightly crisp.
