I LOVE your grandma's recipes BJK! And this was no exception! I am not a lover of cooked celery - only in stews! So, I left it out! Other than that this was made as posted, with Creme Fraiche instead of heavy cream. I garnished the finished peas with a frond of tarragon and enjoyed this today with Recipe #426733. Made for the Herb of the Month Club in the French forum and the Magic of herbs in the Photos forum, merci encore ma leeetle petits pois! Tartelette :-)
