    Frozen peas are usually very good quality, reasonably priced, handy to have
    not just for a stand alone veggie but to add to other foods. We like them
    with risotto, soups, stews, and thawed for salads.

    At the moment, I see as many people nuke frozen peas as boli them. I've
    been known to nuke them but my usual technique is to dump the frozen
    peas into boiling water and strain them when most rise to the top.

    I feel like boiling peas is overkill. They're so delicate. Just my
    opinion, obviously. At most I'd heat them in a small pot with just
    enough water to steam them.

    James isn't boiling them. He puts them into the hot tub just long
    enough to defrost and heat up.

    I buy them sometimes and usually nuke them.
    I mostly buy the "no salt added" canned peas.
    Low sodium canned veggies are not nearly as mushy as the regular ones
    and really do compare nicely to fresh frozen.

    I actually have an ice bag for that... <g>
    Airrosti treatments pretty much require keeping an ice bag around.

    On the second question, MCINL. Half the time, I don't cook them at all,
    just thaw them under running water and add them to salads. The other
    half of the time, I either add them frozen to something that's going to
    be heated (casserole, curry, soup, etc.) or cook them in a tiny bit of
    water on the stove, then add butter/salt/pepper.

    If we're having them as a 'stand alone' veggie I always nuke 'em. (I
    also add butter). On the odd occasion e.g. when using them in a curry,
    I'll throw them in frozen.

    I enjoy them that way also.

    Frozen peas are one of the better frozen food offerings, IMHO. But the
    only time I really like peas raw is when they are straight from the
    garden. We grew some in our veggie garden last summer and they were
    delish - I scarfed a bunch of them right out of the pod. Going to plant
    some more this year too.

    They're wonderful straight out of the garden, but can be pretty dismal when
    bought in a store's produce section. Like corn, the sugar quickly turns to
    starch. Frozen peas are flash frozen as soon as they can be picked and
    shelled, so retain most of their natural sweetness.

    If I'm using frozen peas in a salad, I just cover them with cold water long
    enough to thaw them. They don't need cooking.

    I don't know if the fact that I love them is because few people do, but
    peas are one of my favorite veggies. Butter'd or as part of a stew, or
    pasty, they certainly have value.

    Lin - Major props to you for making me laugh so hard :-)

    You are/were exactly what I needed this moment.

    I think you do, and I further will postulate that you are a sweetie.

    Quite so.

    We have TV ad showing here at the moment for frozen peas - where the
    farmer picks the peas in the field (in broad sunshine) and then strides
    over to a fence... and on the other side of said fence there is a
    blizzard blowing... Then he says that they are "Flash frozen for
    freshness". ;-)

    Seems to work - they're the brand I usually buy <veg>
