Peas.org. have a huge selection of delicious pea and frozen pea recipes, seasonal pea and frozen pea recipes and supper ideas, using the ultimate convenience food - peas!&nbsp; Yes Peas! campaign has launched a collaboration with Tommy&rsquo;s, the baby charity, more information at <a href="http://www.happeafces.co.uk/">www.happeafces.co.uk</a><br /><strong>Nutritional Information</strong><br />Peas are a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, thiamine (B1), iron and phosphorus. <br />As pulses, they are rich in protein, carbohydrate and fibre and low in fat which is mostly of the unsaturated kind. <br />Half a cup of frozen peas has only 5% of the daily value for sodium. Foods low in sodium are good for your heart. <br />An 85 gram serving of peas, cooked, provides 50 calories, 4 grams of protein, 8 grams of carbohydrate (of which 3.5 grams are sugars), 3.8 grams of fibre, 17mg of vitamin C (28% of the recommended daily allowance) and 0.2mg Thiamine (B1) (15% of the recommended daily allowance). <br /><strong>Cooking Tips</strong><br />The less water you use when cooking peas, the less vitamin C is lost. Steaming helps to conserve this vitamin. <br />When boiling frozen peas, add enough water to cover, bring to the boil and then cover and simmer for three minutes. <br />To microwave 227 grams (8oz) of frozen peas add 15ml (1 tablespoon) of water, place in non metallic container and cover. Cook on full power for 4 minutes (750W) or 4 1/2 minutes (650W). <br /><strong>Facts and Figures</strong><br />The Latin name for peas is pisum sativum. <br />There are 35,000 hectares of peas grown in the UK each year, equivalent to about 70,000 football pitches. <br />This produces about 160,000 tonnes of frozen peas - that's 2 billion 80 gram portions. <br />The UK is the largest producer of peas for freezing in Europe. We have a unique East facing seaboard which is ideally suited to pea production. Peas are packed with nutrients and are always there to make something delicious. From pea soups, pea risottos and stir fries using peas, to curry, dips and tarts, peas add flavour and vibrant colour. Peas are good for you too! <br />These little green gems are favourites with everyone. Celebrity chefs such as Tom Norrington-Davies and Jamie Oliver sing their praises. &quot;Peas [are] in the top ten of ... the things that we produce well in large quantities,&quot; (Jamie's Dinners) <br />Ten good reasons why peas please<br />Freshly frozen garden peas and petits pois are frozen within just two and a half-hours of being picked. This locks in all the nutrients, which can be lost at room temperature. <br />Freshly frozen garden peas and petits pois are so convenient - taking just three minutes to cook. <br />Just one serving of freshly frozen garden peas and petits pois contains as much vitamin C as two large apples, more fibre than a slice of wholemeal bread and more thiamine than a pint of whole milk. <br />Peas are just about the most versatile vegetable in the world. They taste great in risotto, kedgeree, omelettes, pizzas, pastas, soups, salads, casseroles and curries. <br />The speedy freezing process preserves the sweet and succulent taste that can otherwise be rapidly lost. <br />No matter the season, freshly frozen garden peas are available throughout the year. <br />The freezing process preserves the lustrous pea green colour that adds vibrancy to so many dishes. <br />Being freshly frozen, there's absolutely no preparation needed. Just add to your recipe or pop them straight into soups, casseroles or curries. <br />There's no wastage. Garden peas or petits pois chosen for freezing are the pick of the bunch. There are no duds. <br />There's nothing added to freshly frozen garden peas: no salt, sugar or water and certainly no other preservatives or additives. Just Mother Nature's own way of preservation - freezing.
