canning intensifies the sweetness of peas to an extent I no longer like. (BTW, I never minded them as a kid, and peas and string beans were my fave veg at the time) I find the frozen baby peas acceptable.

When I was a kid.. I had a crazy cat. She loved to take baths and played fetch better than any dog I ever had. Her favorite dinner was canned peas. lol

I grew up on canned peas - so I guess they are a "comfort food" in a way. While I normally use forzen peas most of the time - when I want Grandma's pea salad or Mom's creamed peas - it has to be canned peas. Nothing else taste right.

greenish..

If I could find a canned brand that preserved the fabulous kelly green color of fresh peas, then I'd consider it.

But since I haven't had such luck...and because I won't shuck a pea pod...I go with frozen. Cheap, easy, and they still have a bit of bite.

Michael, did you post your grandmother's pea salad? That was my first post when I came here - Pea Salad. Thanks a bunch.

Since I don't like peas at all & hubby & the kids only like canned peas, I use them most of the time. I do use frozen or freash peas for stews & stir frys though.

I eat canned peas all the time! The only other one that will eat peas here, is my youngest. We fight over who gets the last of it. I had to start warming 2 cans once he got bigger and eats like a horse :o)

I don't like canned peas, they taste too sweet to me.

I do use frozen peas occasionally, but only the petit pois type and cook them for half the recommended cooking time. Then they taste almost 'real'.

I don't like peas unless they're freshly shelled from the garden and uncooked. Strange, I know. To this day I scoot the peas out of a dish onto the side of my plate. And it's still a great point of teasing from my family! My mom is always inviting me over for pea salad. My son gave me grief about having to join the army in order to be served peas. LOL

I can't think of any other vegetable I won't eat.
