After the shells were removed, we blanched the peas for two minutes in boiling water, and then froze the peas on trays. We will put them in vacuum sealed bags tomorrow, label them, and return them to the freezer. While I don't think freezing peas is really an economical thing to do, I enjoy the process of picking, eating them while picking, shelling, and freezing them. My little dog loves fresh peas too, and waits for me to give her some of the peas while I'm shelling them.
Finally today I did another round of bean picking and processing. I had four different varieties of beans to pick today, and then processed them by snapping off their ends. They will spend the night in the refrigerator, and then get blanched and frozen tomorrow.
