Tastes good but I just can't make myself do such unhealthy things (butter and sugar) to gorgeous garden fresh sugar snap peas. Sorry.

Because of Ameliahead's review I left out the lemon juice, and I really liked this. I've lost my taste for desserts, but I like a sweet vegetable sometimes. Will make again! Thanks.

I made this for Thanksgiving--a good choice for the holidays, I think. It was pretty good, although the lemon juice does discolor the snap peas a bit. I recommend omitting it if you like your veggies bright green. Tasty, though! Everyone liked it!
