Buttered Peas

I. Heart. Peas. So, why don't I eat them every day? I have no idea. These were delicious. And simple enough to eat every day.


Buttered Peas
Gourmet magazine, April 1971

3 lb peas
1/2 c butter
1 tsp sugar
pepper
mint leaves, chopped

Shell peas and cook in boiling water for 20-25 minutes, until tender. (If using frozen peas, boil according to package directions.)

Combine cooked peas in a saucepan with butter, softened. heat gently for a few minutes. Then, add sugar and pepper, to taste. Serve, sprinkled with chopped mint leaves.

I've never thought of putting a little sugar in there. I'll try that next time.
