Hey, Sweet Pea, is that you? Why, I hardly recognized you, you look so fresh and fabulous, even downright stylish. Let's face it, peas have come a long way since we were kids. Their humble beginnings, from the box and can, got them off to a poor start in the fashionable vegetable world. But now, as their fresh and natural selves, they are positively on trend this season. Starting this May, and going all through the summer, the idea of peas on your plate will be absolutely modern. If you’re smart you'll get them while they are freshest and buying them locally is best.
