Sometimes we would even take a nap under the big oak tree right next to the barn. The only time I went into the house in the summer was during canning time. I had to help.

I would put off going into the house because I was afraid my mother would make me stay in. Why she would want me in there to pester her is beyond me!

I do agree that the reason I do not like peas is because of the cooking method and or presentation.
I use and eat peas used as decoration. But to eat a pile of peas on my plate reminds me of when I was a kid.
I actually vomited when forced to eat them.
This also might have some factor as to my distain for them.

How about a recipe for me to try? I am always willing to try anything at least twice in the words of Andrew Zimmern.
Ahh, I can see what you mean. If they were starchy and boiled to death when you were force fed them I can see why you hate them

My husband likes canned peas. To me, those are mushy. I like frozen peas, cooking really just heats them up, and they are a little crunchy.

I like both. But they have to be the petite ones. I have a bag of petites in the freezer. I think next month when I buy my beets, I will try using the frozen ones instead of the canned ones. I used to eat them frozen by the handful.

A fond childhood memory is of a roast pork dinner with roasted potatoes and canned Del Monte peas for the veggie. The sweet mushiness of those peas was what made that meal for me.

My sweet peas keep falling of my fork nowadays. Partly due to aging and partly due to the low living room coffee table I eat my meals on. I move some peas into the mashed potatoes now so I don't have to pick them up off the floor.

Frozen Peas beat canned in my book.

I always have them in my freezer. They seem to have many uses.

I just defrost them and they go great in a salad.

And Taters just aren't the same without peas. The two just seem to go together.

How can you not mix a few peas in with the mashed taters?

I like crispy skins on baked taters and tossing some crisp peas into the skin with a bit of S&P and butter is heaven to me.

Sort of a tater & Pea sandwich.

Brings to mind a saying my dad used to tell us when we were kids...

" I eat my peas with honey, I've done it all my life, it makes the peas taste funny but it keeps them on my knife" : )

For dinner tonight I just had a bowl of native Bahamian peas soup (yes, that's how they spell it). Not a green pea to be seen... it's made with pigeon peas, cabbage, onion, carrot and few other things - the stock is made with a ham bone. And index finger sized dumplings - plus a side of stuffed breadfruit - yum.

I had a book called "Silly Rhymes" and that one was in it.

"As I was standing in the street,
As happy as could be,
A great big, ugly man came up
And tied his horse to me."
