    Default Pea Tips!

    Pics at alt.binaries.food.
    Study them, please, and tell me what I should be doing (if anything) to
    trim them before I cook them. Do I remove the tendrils? The hollow
    stem appears to be young. Maybe.

    I await your counsel.

    Not ezzackly. Like this. And I'm going to do it her way, I think.
    I've already plucked the leaves from the stems and they're in the fridge
    awaiting my pleasure.

    Unfortunately, I have never even heard of "pea tips". I have no idea, but I
    am curious.

    I plucked and fried up only the leaves. I cooked a fat clove of chopped
    garlic in some oil, dumped the pea leaves in and watched while they
    cooked down FAST. My full pan was just enough for two. I dribbled a
    little oyster sauce over them in the pan and stirred it up. They were
    good. I still have some for another (small) serving.

    I am eating a lot of young greens this year. We've blown through the
    first harvest of dwarf pak choi and planted some more (they get picked
    at 2" tall) and tonight we had some garlic scapes. I have a mess o'
    spinach about to be picked and some young broccoli leaves are looking
    good, so I just may stir fry those tomorrow.

    No trimming needed. Yours look especially young.

    They are called pea "shoots" in this neck of the woods.

    I'd go with the last one. I ordered a wonderful pasta dish tonight
    that had green peas, fava beans, roasted garlic and spinach mixed with
    parmesan and a very thin noodle that was not quite 1/2 inch wide. If
    they'd put pea shoots in there, I wouldn't have objected.
