To blanch or not to blanch
Spent half the new year's day public holiday picking, trimming and blanching a small mountain of snow peas and a bucket of broad beans. The next day, someone told me she just pods the broad beans and freezes them. So I'll give that a go next time and report back on the difference. I'm not actually confident that the blanched and frozen snow peas will still be nice to eat when defrosted. It's the first time I've tried it. Do you have a winning way of storing your oversupply of snow peas and broad beans? I'd love to hear what worked best for you.
