Freezing Pea Pods

We had a bunch of pea pods ready, so yesterday I picked and froze them.  It’s pretty simple, so here are the directions:

  1. Trim the ends and remove the strings.
  2. Blanch in boiling water for 1 minute.
  3. Put in ice water bath to stop the cooking. (I forgot to have this ready, so I just ran them under cold water.)
  4. Place in freezer bags, label, and freeze.

    Thank you for the help I needed-easy to follow on freezing peapods. Diana

  2. Thanks for the succinct and simple plan for freezing pea pods. It was what I thought, but just wanted to make sure before I told anyone else. We have had a bumper crop this year, more than ever before. Certainly will look forward to eating them this winter when the winds are howling. I’m going to bookmark your site for more tips.
