    truebrit's Note:

    A traditional English recipe. Use either new, small peas, or small frozen peas. This is wonderful served as part of an English Sunday roast dinner! Another gem from Great British Cooking.

      This is exactally how Mum used to cook her peas! Yum! Since I was boiling potatoes on the stove top (and to save an extra pot) I placed my peas into tin foil, added fresh mint then folded up the tin foil and sat it on top of the potatoes. Once heated through I followed truebrit's recipe exactally. Thanks!

      These taste like the peas I had while growing up! I used frozen peas and dried mint and 1/2 tsp. of sugar. Super yummy! Made for Englands virtual culinary tour 2009.
