Snow peas are always good and I've just realized why. While we put foods like corn, bamboo shoots, spring peas, and water chestnuts into cans, ruining the texture, flavor, and color, and essentially everything about the vegetable (if you've had peas straight from the garden and compare that to mushy yellow-green peas from a can, you know what I mean...), I've never seen a canned snow pea. Actually, the only places I've ever seen snow peas (aside from my own garden), are at our farmer's market or frozen in a "stir fry vegetables" mix at the supermarket.
Snow peas are not only easy-to-grow, but they're tasty, go with everything, and only require a few minutes of cooking to get to that tender-but-still-crisp texture. They're also great raw, either thrown in a salad whole or julienned. Plant them yourself for one of the best garden vegetables you can grow!
