Popping Peapod Wine!
As is the end of the pea season, we are busy drying and popping open our surplus peas ready for sowing next year. We like peas for the simple fact that they grow really quickly and offer a fine harvest, however, one of the drawbacks is that you need a huge quantity of pea plants to produce a high yield. If you wanted to grow enough peas to feed a family for a year, an allotment the size of two rugby pitches would be required! Still, we have had enough peas for a few decent meals.
One of my guilty pleasures of growing peas is the waste produced! That’s right, when I see peapods upon a plant I not only see the peas, but, I see a fine glass of peapod wine in my hand.
I make my own home brewed wine, and pea pod is a fantastic tipple!
