Ingredients

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook 5 minutes. Add the sugar snap peas and cook, stirring occasionally, until bright green and crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Mix in the sugar and salt and cook 1 minute more. Stir the half-and-half with 3 cups of water in a large measuring cup.
  2. Place half the snap-pea mixture in a blender or food processor. Pour in half the water mixture and puree until very smooth, 30 to 60 seconds. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Pour the soup through a strainer and chill for at least 4 hours. Sprinkle with the chives (if desired) before serving.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
