Shell out for hearty helpings of the now-in-season favorite

Get ready to hear a frequent request to “pass the peas, please!” That’s because the summer months bring this economical, well-loved Southern favorite to the market in abundance. There are too many varieties to count, with each having unique characteristics that make trying as many as you can find a necessity. And while they are so plentiful, stock the freezer or can the excess. Then at the end of the day, pull up the rocking chairs, grab a paper sack and a bowl and start shelling. The conversation it sparks tonight will be just as delightful as the dinner it enhances tomorrow.
