What you get
A 1-cup serving of the versatile vegetable gives you one-third of your Daily Value of vitamin C and 3 grams fiber.
- Shopping Tips
- Sugar snap peas (a.k.a. “snap peas”) should be plump and bright green in color.
- They have a woody stem on one end of the pod that needs to be trimmed before eating and fibrous strings along the sides. To remove the stem and strings at the same time, hold the stem between your thumb and index finger, snap and pull down (see technique photo). Or look for bags of already trimmed “stringless” sugar snap peas in the prepared-vegetable section.
- One pound snap peas equals about 4 cups.
- Storage Tip
- Refrigerate in a plastic bag for 2 to 3 days.
