Freshly shelled peas are rich in protein and iron, and are so tender and sweet. And, it takes only a few minutes to shell enough peas for a meal. Make it a family project; sit around the kitchen table, and chat as you shell the peas. You’ll create memories as you create your lunch or dinner. This simple yet delicious dish can be enjoyed hot or chilled, which makes it perfect to take to an outdoor concert. Pack along some good wheat bread and maybe some local goat’s milk cheese, a simple, calcium-rich arugula salad, and fresh local raspberries for dessert.
