Store Peas for Summers
#Easy #Freezer # 3step method
Peel----- Pack----- Freeze
Winters and peas go hand in hand. Think of winters and the very first veggie that pops up in our minds is peas.
Though peas are now available round the year but the quality that is there in winters is unbeatable.
Apart from this, huge difference in the prices too. In winters, we get best peas at a dirt cheap price whereas in summers, even the not so good peas also at exorbitant prices.
So, how about storing peas in winters and avail the tasty benefits in summers?
Here, I share with you the simplest and most effective method of storing peas.
I, myself have been using this method for years now. Foolproof method. The only time I was disappointed was when during peak summers, my refrigerator conked off unexpectedly and took some time in getting fixed up again.
Anyway, back to storing part :
Buy peas, peel them, pack in ziplock bags and freeze them in your refrigerator. That's it. Neither wash nor boil.
You can store peas in any ziplock bag or poly bag or airtight containers, be it steel or plastic. But I don't prefer containers simply because they take up more space. It is advisable to freeze small packets so that one packet is consumed fully in 2-3 times only.
Whenever you feel like using them, just take out one bag, wash it under running water and use as desired.
Do not thaw the entire quantity. Take out as much required and refreeze the remaining peas.
So the washing part is also done but at the later stage.
Peas stored in this method remains good easily for a year.
Make sure that you have an uninterrupted power supply. In case of power failure for more than 2-3 hours, don't forget to parcel your frozen peas to your friend/ relative/ neighbour's place.
