Freeze it in meal-size quantities. But make sure you leave some out for munching. DH takes them in his lunch all the time.

Frankly, I never bother to string them anymore. Haven't found it necessary with the new varieties grown these days. Way back when Snow Peas were first becoming available fresh, they did have very tough strings - almost like shell peas. But these days, there's hardly anything there. I'd taste-test a few before going to all the trouble of stringing a whole box full.

We did make stir fry, i think we did not get that good variety, we should have string them.

A pound is a LOT of Snow Peas! The supermarkets do sell them loose, an ounce at a time.

When making Won Ton Soup, I don't bother removing the "string", but I do trim off the ends and then cut them to bite-size length.
