Burnin' Beak Lime-Mint Peas
Fresh frozen peas, those little round balls of creamy deliciousness that pop when you bite into them, are one of the handiest, easy-to-use, high-quality vegetables in the freezer section of our grocery stores.
This recipe takes these tender peas and gives them a touch of citrusy lime and fresh mint and our Green Ghost Pepper Jelly and turns them into a show-stopper side dish. Quick, easy and fantastically delicious!

Pair these peas with pork chops or lamb and rice or couscous for a wonderful, soul-satisfying meal. A full-flavored Chardonnay or fruity Pinot Noir would match up well.
