mint pepper jelly sweet petite peas

I don’t know why we don’t eat peas more often!  After having peas done with this recipe, I KNOW we’ll be adding peas to many more meals!  The sauce I created from two ingredients is like a ‘dressing’, and with the addition of the fresh pea shoots, there’s a slight crunch and a subtle ‘bitter and peppery’ trace that hits the palate.

Now, you just know you could keep adding more colors to this~~heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, pine nuts, sweet red or orange peppers, and next time, for sure, I’ll add some green onions!

  1. Peas are a favored vegetable in our house. I will have to dress them with some mint jelly next time and see if my hubby likes it as much as Ben did!

    1. Miss Priscilla! Hope hubster does…of course, Ben says everything he eats is the ‘best he’s ever had’ until the next meal!! LOL! xo

    1. Thank you, Chris…actually, Ben, my hubby, said these were the best peas he’d ever eaten…they just had not only that sweet pea flavor but a slight crunch from the pea shoots and a sublet kick from the pepper jelly! Always LOVE having you here! xo
