These peas will give chills!

Snow peas are a small to medium-sized varietal, averaging 5 to 8 centimeters in length, and the pods have a flat, straight, oblong shape with tapered, pointed ends. 

Snow peas are a source of potassium to balance fluid levels within the body, iron to develop the protein hemoglobin for oxygen transport through the bloodstream, and fiber to regulate the digestive tract. The variety also provides vitamin C to strengthen the immune system while reducing inflammation, vitamin A to maintain healthy organ functioning, calcium to build strong bones and teeth, and other nutrients, including folic acid, vitamin K, magnesium, and B vitamins. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, peas are consumed to stimulate the digestive tract and cleanse the liver.

Snow peas have a subtly sweet, mild, and grassy flavor suited for fresh and cooked preparations. The calyx remnants and strings should be removed from the pods before consumption, and the pods cook quickly. Snow peas can be used raw in salads, or they can be served on crudité trays, eaten with herb dips, hummus, or cottage cheese. The pods can also be chopped and layered into spring rolls, sliced and mixed into grain bowls, or blanched, sliced into thin strips, and placed as a garnish or topping over main dishes. In addition to fresh preparations, Snow peas can be added to stir-fries, tossed into rice or noodle-based dishes, or incorporated into curries and soups. Snow peas can also be steamed into eggs, roasted with nuts, added to main meat dishes, or steamed and combined with fresh herbs, butter, and citrus as a zesty side dish. In Japan, Snow peas are traditionally simmered in a dashi broth, a side dish known as ohitashi. They are also mixed into chirashi sushi, meaning "scattered sushi," a rice-based bowl filled with ingredients commonly found in sushi. Beyond the edible pods and peas, young Snow pea greens, flowers, and shoots are edible and are popularly used as simple side dishes. Snow peas pair well with seafood such as shrimp, scallops, and white fish, nuts including cashews, peanuts, and almonds, citrus, aromatics such as garlic, ginger, shallots, and onions, spring vegetables such as mushrooms, radishes, and asparagus, and herbs including scallions, mint, parsley, and tarragon.

Whole, unwashed Snow peas will keep for 3 to 7 days when stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Once cooked, the pods should be eaten within 2 to 3 days. The pods can also be parboiled and frozen for extended use.
