Recipe by COOKGIRl
From www.familyfun.com. I give the suggestion of fresh orange juice if you do not have marmalade on hand.

Very NICE way to dress up a side of peas! Peas, carrots, corn and broccoli/cauliflower are my usual staples when it comes to vegetables, & the more I can jazz them up, the better. The combination of orange & almond flavors makes for a great-tasting dish! Many thanks, to you ~ I'll be keeping this on file!
- 2 cups small baby green peas, fresh or 2 cups frozen green peas
