There is no better time for snow peas than Spring. They love the milder weather, not too hot and not too cold. At different times they grow all around Australia but right now the best come from local farms in the Sydney basin. This is a total no waste product. You eat the whole legume and hence the French name is MANGETOUT which translates to eat all. They rarely get any cheaper than they are this week. I love them cooked lightly into stir-fries or as an addition to the main meal. Don’t forget cook very lightly or even consumed raw as a snacking vegetable or in a salad. Enjoy them this week at their absolute best.
