This is best with fresh sweet green peas right out of the garden. My mom uses this recipe and it is a favorite of my family. Adapted from Gooseberry Patch Celebrate Summer.

I was searching for a recipe that jazzed up peas and came across was perfect as I had some cream that I needed to use up...I used frozen baby peas and they worked fine and tasted great..but I'm sure fresh ones would only make it better. Thanks Di.
