If there is one vegetable that in my opinion always tastes best when freshly picked, it has to be Peas. I love them, especially picked straight from the vine, shelled and eaten whilst wandering around the vegetable plot on a warm summer evening. I have known a time, when I’ve eaten so many, whilst wandering around the garden, that by the time I go indoors my tongue has turned green.
Peas eaten fresh like this are very sweet, and always have that melt in the mouth flavour.
For the sweetest flavour, peas are always best picked and eaten straight away, because the sugars soon begin converting to starch once picked. That’s why those pods you buy in the supermarket never taste the same as your own.
