An A to Z guide to choosing, storing, preparing, and cooking fresh produce and recipe ingredients.

  • How to Choose Sugar Snap Peas
    Sugar snap peas should be bright green with plump, firm, unblemished pods.

  • How to Store Sugar Snap Peas
    Keep sugar snap peas unwashed (moisture speeds decay) and loosely wrapped in the refrigerator’s vegetable drawer for up to 4 days. For maximum sweetness they should be eaten as soon as possible (the sugars begin converting to starch the minute they’re picked).

    How to Prepare Sugar Snap Peas
    Sugar snap peas can be eaten whole after removing the stems and the strings. If cooking them, do so briefly to preserve the crunch.

  • How to Use Sugar Snap Peas
    Sugar snap peas are delicious raw, in salads, and in stir-fries.
