    Another old time favourite. Grandma always had lots of different ways to serve vegetables. This is another of her recipes. Hope you will enjoy.

      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 Old English Herb Rub for Fish. 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 :-)

      This was so good! I had only 1 celery rib left. Used 2 teaspoons dried tarragon and 16 ounces of frozen peas that I added to the scallions. I didn`t cook them first! I cut the butter in half. Thanks!!!

      My kind of food, vegetables and cream, you can't go wrong. Easily prepared, this was a lovely side, with delicate flavours, and so quickly prepared, it can be enjoyed any night of the week. Thanks BK, I really enjoyed this!
