Green Pea Shoots



Packed with vitamins A[1], C[2] and folic acid[3], Pea Shoots are a delicious, nutritious modern slant on the classic British garden pea. Lyndel Costain, B.Sc.RD, award winning dietitian and author of Super Nutrients Handbook, says, “Pea Shoots are a nutritious leaf with high levels of vitamin C and vitamin A. A 50g bag of these tasty greens offers more than half of the RDA for vitamin C, a quarter of the RDA for vitamin A and significant amounts of folic acid. It is great news that this healthy and simple to prepare British vegetable leaf is readily available to consumers

soak your peas for a few hours to overnight, heavily plant out a pot or pots and in three to seven days you will have lovely fresh three to five inch high tender greens ready for your cooking, keep planting out every so many days. if you want plant a bigger pot, put a wee three stick teepee up and grown them a foot to a foot an half to have a big feed in a stir-fry


We had a feed last night on our homemade pizza, it delightful, and today I will start more sprout and plant more peas, before it wilted, there was a half cup chopped greens an vines mixed with our beef and mushrooms, it was local cheese, so looking forward to making my own again. the one I am craving is sheep feta, sharp and tangy..

So what are you waiting for, get out your seed box or tote and get some peas planted up, if you have already not done so!

    Your sprouts & pizza look great!!!
    We love fresh cheese! Hubby makes quite a variety but has never dealt with fresh goat cheese yet. We’re hooked on buttery cheese made form jersey milk.
    Just wondering….how do you preserve your mushrooms or are they fresh???
    We’re always happy to find discounted mushrooms to fry up & freeze. We’ve tried drying mushrooms but not too thrilled over them but could have been how we used them. I’m excited to go mushroom gathering this year for the first time!!
