The Magical Process Of Storing Green Peas

This is the season of green peas and it is time to think like a ant.And we always tend to buy frozen green peas at super markets and they do cost a lot.

A year back I bought 10 kg of green pea pods and freezed them and used for a whole year without any compromise in use for many of my dishes. I want to share this lovely technique of storing green peas with you all.

The credit goes to my SIL who taught me this wonderful process to store green peas with a shelf life of 6-8 months !!

  • 1.5 kg green peas pods
  • 1 medium size ziploc for storage

Split and extract the peas and keep in bowl  
Take a large bowl and fill 3/4 th with water and boil it.

Once it starts boiling reduce the flame and add the green peas.

 It will settle in bottom initially and it will start to float slowly. 
Once all the peas float scoop them and dry them on a cloth.This process will take 1-2 minutes. 

Store in a medium size ziploc and keep in freezer.

1.You can also store them in freezer safe storage container which is very popular in tupperware brand.  

2.Do not overboil the peas as they will get cooked, it should be semi-boiled for reuse.
