Snow peas aren’t white, so how do they come by their name? It might be because they grow at the end of winter, before the last spring freeze. Even if covered with snow at that time they still grow well. Snow peas cook in a flash, so the wok is ideal to get this legume to the table still crunchy and firm. Stirfry with garlic then top with lightly toasted sesame seeds, and they make a perfect accompaniment to oriental main dishes.
