    HeatherFeather's Note:

    I have served this delicious side dish many times over the years. The original recipe came from one of my favorite community cookbooks,"Enough to Feed an Army." I usually serve this as an accompaniment to lamb as the mint flavor blends quite nicely with lamb. If you are in a hurry, you can simply melt the butter in the pan and proceed wthout waiting for it to brown. Since mint plays a major role in this recipe, is it highly recommend that you stick with fresh rather than dried mint. Tip: I snip my mint leaves with kitchen shears.

      Heather, these peas are delightful! I love peas and could eat them anyway, anyhow. I've never had them with mint and I find this to be a refreshing change. I only added one small onion, however that was the only change I made. This recipe could easily be served to company. Wonderful peas, Heather!

      I thought this was very good. I've been wanting to try the mint/pea combo for a while and this is a good basic recipe. I love peas and this was very tasty. I think that I would have rather used less onion, though- I felt it overwhelmed the pea and mint flavor a little. Good flavors, though and a very tasty side! Gotta love those peas. ;)
