Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • Water

Make It

1. Place peas in a small saucepan. Add enough water to cover. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 3 minutes. Drain peas, reserving cooking liquid. Cool slightly.

2. Puree peas through a food mill, baby food grinder, or miniature food processor, adding enough of the reserved cooking liquid (about 1/4 cup) to obtain desired consistency. Use within 1 day, or freeze up to 1 month.

To Freeze:

3. Spoon finished food into ice cube trays. Cover with waxed paper and freeze until firm. When ice cubes are frozen, remove cubes from tray and store in a resealable plastic freezer bag or freezer container. Label package with contents and date. Use within 1 month. Before serving, let thaw in the refrigerator overnight.

To Serve:

4. Heat thawed mixture to lukewarm in a small dish set in a pan of hot water. Stir before serving. Always sample a small bite to make sure the food is not too hot.
