2 cups frozen peas

1 tbsp. dried mint leaves

1 tsp. Butter

tsp. salt

Toss all above in a saucepan, pop the lid on and simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the peas thaw.  Reduce heat to low and gently simmer for 10 minutes.  The peas "steam" in the moisture that the thawing process provides so low heat is very important.  Remember to keep an eye on them because they will be done just about the same time that they run out of moisture and few things smell as bad as burned peas.

 

Company just dropped in for dinner and the only thing green in the house is last weeks bread.  No worry.  There's always frozen peas and the mint you so wisely dried last fall.

Serves:  4 - 6

Serve with: Any meat or vegetable dish
