sugar snap peas

Buy

smooth and plump emerald-colored pods that "snap" when broken in half.

Select

pods that are no more than 2 1/2 inches in length (overgrown peas will be tough).

Prep

by snapping off the stem end and removing the flosslike strand that runs along the seam.

Refrigerate

in a plastic bag with a paper towel for about 5 days (the paper towel keeps the peas from spoiling).
