Thanksgiving Recipes

Little Green Peas With Fresh Mint.

I’m from the south and we do like our collards greens and kale during the holidays. We like other green vegetables as well.

1 – 16 oz. package of frozen peas. I buy the tiny and tender frozen peas in a bag.

2 tablespoons of butter or margarine

6 large, fresh mint leaves, leave them whole.

Pour  2 cups of water into a medium sauce pan, add the peas and blanch them over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Drain the water from the peas and set them aside. In a skillet add the butter and melt it over low heat, add the mint leaves and about a 1/2 teaspoon of sugar. Saute’ the mint leaves for about a minute or so, and them remove them. Add the peas to the butter/mint, and toss gently until the peas are coated with butter.

What a delicious flavor, minty and crisp. Goes so well with all the other dishes we have at Thanksgiving.
