HANDLING & PREPARATION
With Sugar snaps should have the string removed whether they are to be eaten raw or cooked. Unlike green peas, the string on a sugar snap runs around both sides of the pod. It's easiest to start at the bottom tip and pull the string up the front, then snap off the stem and pull the string down the back. Sugar Snaps, as well as shelled green peas, can be eaten raw. But if you cook them, do so briefly so that they retain their delicate and delicious flavor and texture.
