Husk Sugar Snap Peas

Jun 27th

Our sugar snap peas are grown by Keith Clute of K and A Organic Roots, Inc. from Fowler, Indiana. Sugar snap peas are a cross between shelled garden peas and snow peas. They are different from the other peas in that they have thick round edible pods.

Once they arrive at our plant, we snip the ends off the pods using this machine.

Then, we blanch them to preserve the sweetness.

After they are cooled and dried, they are bagged, sealed, and boxed up.
