According to my husband it is hotter and muggier up here than in Atlanta and Austin. Lucky us. It is so oppressive at the moment and it looks like it will last for several days more. Averaging about 90-95F/32-35C with a heat index of about 105F/40C. I only know of one person, a good friend of mine, who is really happy about this, the rest of us are miserable!
And the peas choose this time to be ready to harvest. Timing is everything! It takes me a few days as I only have one tray that works to freeze the peas so I do this in stages. We did use some fresh for our risotto the other day. So wonderful with fresh picked peas. 🙂
The steps are easy. Pick, shell, freeze, vacuum seal. Done!
And they are a really nice treat eating them frozen as well. Especially on a hot day!
