Cooking Time for Fresh Peas?
 
I bought some wonderful looking fresh peas to shell and cook for dinner tonight. It's been ages since I've cooked anything but petit frozen peas, though, which cook in a flash, and I'm wondering how long I should cook these?

How do you like them PA? Do you like them mushy or a little al dente? If you like them al dente, cook them for just a couple minutes. Once they turn colour they only need a minute or so. If you like them mushy, about 5 minutes.

Thanks, Alix! I like them al dente, Nathan likes them mushy, and Sof in-between!:rolleyes: I usually set in-between as the compromise, so I'll aim for 3-4 minutes. :lol:
