Oh, I HATE canned peas!! I do, however, love fresh snow peas. I'm generally not a pea fan. My mom would feed us canned peas, canned corn, canned grean beans. I don't buy canned anything except beans (in moderation) and try to buy only fresh or frozen veggies. It means more trips to the store, but it's worth it. I don't want the added salt and preservatives.

Give me a recipe, and I can cook anything!

if i had children, i'd give them canned peas. i grew up on them and love them now. i usually like my veggies freesh, crisp-tender and bright in color, but i love canned peas.

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink

Yuck! No canned peas in my house. I eat frozen peas which are far better! :)

I use them in creamed dishes and sometimes alone. We do not get fresh peas here and I use the the frozen peas in salads.Naturally we would love the fresh ones the best.

If I had to.
When and where I grew up, canned peas were available year round. Fresh peas were only available during the garden season. And only if you had a garden. They were time consuming and labor intensive and so rare. Now in my late years I buy only frozen. They require just a run under hot water and the last to go in casserole or salad. When I cook "just peas" it is a couple of minutes in the microwave with butter and salt and pepper. Canned peas are already over cooked.

We like canned peas. Le Seur is good, and so are the Green Giant ones with the little pearl onions in them. I nuke them with a pat of butter, a pinch of sugar and a pinch of salt. I use the cheaper canned ones for casseroles. We like frozen ones and fresh ones too!
We get by with a little help from our friends

Frozen vegetables are soooooooooooooo much healthier than canned.
Have you had your habanero pepper today????
The hotter the pepper, the better the pepper!!!

My mom used to home can peas and other veggies and they were great. I only use canned green beans, tomatoes, beets, cannelini beans, garbanzo beans, or chili beans. The other veggies I use fresh or frozen. I use canned corn only in recipes for cornbread or casseroles. I suppose if you use baby food it would have to be from a jar. I've never seen frozen baby food.
