How To: Blanch Peas

STOP! Before you go scrolling right on past this post because you can't stand peas, I beg of you to reconsider and hear me out.  I am not a pea fan...ugh. I would never serve them as a side or anything like that, but I have a recipe for a wonderful salad that has blanched peas in it.  I almost did not make it because I have no interest in peas, but the sweet lady that shared this recipe with me, assured me even pea-haters love it! So, for now I am just sharing the process of how to blanch peas so that you will know how to do this step when I share the salad.  And if you happen to love peas, you could really knock yourself out and use this method for all sorts of dishes. 
This is the same process as blanching tomatoes that I shared earlier, but I thought I would demonstrate with one more vegetable.  If you are new to blanching, the purpose is to bring whatever vegetable  you are making "to life" so to speak.  Blanching makes vegetables extra crunchy without completely cooking them.    Use the same method for carrot sticks and other veggies that you would like to serve with dips.
How To: Blanch Peas
Ingredients
1 bag of frozen petite peas (or whatever your recipe calls for)
Large bowl of Ice Water
Step by Step
1.  Bring water to a boil.
2.  Add frozen peas and allow to boil for about 1 minute.
3.  Drain peas and immediately immerse them in a bowl of ice water. 
4.  Allow peas to completely cool.
5.  Remove from water and allow to dry on a paper towel.
