Learn how to Blanch and Freeze Fresh Green Peas. I know I am supposed to post a recipe. I am so short of time and wanted to share something that’s done during this season. One of the traditional stuff we always do this season is freezing a huge bag of Fresh Peas, and anything else that’s available.
I have already a post on Fresh Toor and couple of others. Fresh Green Peas is also similar.
I know many of you must be doing it already. Just wanted to record what we do at home.
To begin with, shell the peas, wash well and let it drain in a colander.
I started with 1 kg Fresh Peas. I got a pot of water on stove boiling.
Have a pot with ice cubes ready.
When the water starts rolling boil, add the peas and with a ladle press it in and let it stay for just over a minute.
Drain the peas from the water right away and put it into the cold bath. Let it stand for a minute and you can immediately remove and spread on a cloth to dry.
Once the peas are dried, pack in ziplock bags and freeze.How to Freeze Beans – Fresh Pigeon Pea / Toor Dal and store at home | Step by Step Pictures for Freezing Seeds
