Snow Peas look like flatter versions of our normal shelling peas, but they are softer with an edible outer skin. Snow Peas are a flat-podded variety of pea, eaten whole while the peas within are still very small, hence the French name mangetout, which means 'eat everything'.
This vegetable has been cultivated since the 19th century in Europe. Snow Peas do not need shelling and the whole vegetable is used for cooking. Snow peas are best eaten raw or briefly cooked, such as in stir-fries or quick sautes.
To eat snow peas raw, rinse them well with clean water and use a knife to cut off the tough stems at the end of the pea pods.
