Peas have a sweet taste, a starchy texture and are high in fiber and protein. Peas stored in the refrigerator in a bag or unsealed container will keep for about 5 days. Fresh peas can also be blanched for one or two minutes and then frozen. If you decide to blanch and freeze your green peas, we recommend a maximum storage period of 6-12 months. Add peas to a salad, eat them fresh as a snack, or saute with other vegetables as a side dish.
