Frozen snow peas were inedible...why?
We were fortunate to have a banner year for snow peas last year, both spring and fall plantings (Oregon Giant and Oregon Sugar Pod II). What we couldn't eat or share with friends, I processed by the proscribed 2 min. blanch/ice water bath method per USDA. I then spread the peas out on a towel to dry for a few hours before freezing them in zip lock bags. A couple of months ago, I fixed the first of the frozen peas for dinner, and with the first bite, I spit it out because it tasted so awful! Thinking that it was an anomaly, I tried another bag of peas...same thing. They are all now in the compost. :(
Any ideas on what I did wrong or what alternatives exist for enjoying my harvest?
