How to you usually buy peas?

Here’s a question that is sure to set off the RVing purists in the crowd who believe any question we ask that isn’t directly about RVing should be a punishable crime. We exaggerate, of course. But we will surely get comments critical of our waste of space.

Of course, we would like to suggest that if you open the refrigerator of many, maybe even half of RVers, you will find peas. Or maybe they are in the cupboard — the canned variety. So our point? It’s this: This question is perfectly relevant to RVers!

We hope you will tell us a pea story after you respond. Last time we asked this question, one reader told about the time as a boy his little brother had to be rushed to the hospital to remove peas he had stuffed up his nose. We also had quite a debate about frozen vs. canned peas.

So here’s your chance to voice your thoughts about peas.

I haven’t seen that bumper sticker in a long time. I think it needs to come back – we definitely need more “whirled peas.” Have a good evening, Sink. 🙂 –Diane

I do not like peas so I never buy them in any form.

My parents had a garden, so our peas were generally fresh from it, or frozen but also from our garden. My wife and I do not have a garden but neither is she a fan of peas. So, we buy them infrequently and always (?) frozen. I find canned peas generally more salty than I like.

Not only do frozen taste better, they make a great icebag for “owies”

I marked frozen but depends on the season. When peas are on locally it’s fresh. And I have bought wasabi peas I carry when hunting. Or dried peas when making pea soup.

I prefer to buy a lot of items frozen, cause they stay fresh longer and are not subject to mold like fresh. More able to conserve my food budget money more wisely.

Frozen veggies are my choice. But, if I can find a farmers market then I will definitely get fresh.

I hate peas in any form. They are not allowed in either my house or RV. 🤢

Fresh peas or wasabi peas are my favorites. Frozen peas are used for sore joints or a bump on the head, lol!

Frozen peas, and many other frozen vegetables and fruits, are the next best thing to freshly picked. It’s the best way to assure you get fresh fruits and vegetables when rving. Farmers markets and roadside stands aren’t always available. If you are a long way from a grocery store or are boondocking, then frozen is the way to go to assure you get all the available nutrients from your fruits and vegetables.

Unless you can get peas the day they are picked, I believe frozen are the way to go. My understanding is that they are shucked and frozen immediately keeping the sugars that make them so yummy from turning to starch. The only canned vegetable I eat is corn and tomatoes (but that’s a fruit 🙂 )

Story for you. When I was a teenager camping with my parents, my mom made a dish that, among other things, had peas and gravy. We gave the leftovers to our dog. When we went to get her bowl a few minutes later, the bowl AND THE PEAS were licked clean. There was not a speck of gravy on the peas nor were they broken in any way, and they were canned!

That is so funny! My sister’s dog did the same thing. Maybe they can’t get their tongue wrapped around the pea. We always thought they just didn’t like them.

To me, peas are edible only on the day they are picked. Canned peas are one of the worst foods!

Canned vegetables are gross.

Actually, my favorite Happy Hour snack are Wasabi Peas with some mixed nuts. Those come in a can, but since they’re dried, that’s really not the same as canned peas…

We don’t buy them a lot, except in frozen mixed veggies. But we’re like to grow amor peas for snacking or cooking.

Yep, it’s all in the spelling. One little letter makes a huge difference. Have a great day, Rick! 😀 -Diane

You opened the proverbial can of worms; the only source of marital stress we you. She likes canned, you know the slimy, mushie kind. I like frozen, the snappy, delusions kind. We don’t need to mention the difference in color. As a result, we don’t eat peas.

We buy the frozen peas. Mainly the microwave steam in bag ones. No sodium like canned peas and taste much fresher.
