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!

very good. I made the recipe as directed. I think it had a little too much tarragon.

Great recipe for peas. I like peas, but don't love them. This recipe made me love them. The flavor from the tarragon was lovely and the slight creaminess from the cream superb. I will definitely make this again. Thank you!

A lovely change from plain peas. The only change I made was to use celery salt in place of fresh celery (had none!!). Very easy to make and went well with our pork steaks, chunky cut steamed carrots and Paprika Potatoes Will ceertainly be making this again :)

This is excellent! It went very well with pork. I loved the addition of my fresh garden tarragon. Made for Aussie Swap.

This was quite good. I don't like the texture of cooked celery, so I increased the peas somewhat and added a good handful of celery flakes, which added the celery flavor. I am not quite sure that I cared for how the cream looked with the peas - perhaps I should have left it a bit saucier - but it still tasted good, especially with the lovely fresh tarragon from my garden.
