Dried Peas

    I have picked and frozen a lot of peas so far this year, but eventually the plants in the garden start drying out, so I end up with a lot of unpicked dried-out pods on my vines.  These I just let stay on the vine.  At the end of the gardening season, when I start to rip out the garden, I pick off all of these dried out pea pods from the vines.
    I de-pod these dried out peas and save the best looking ones for seed for next year’s garden.  All of the other dried peas I put in a jar or plastic bag and use when I make soup, much like what I do with dried beans.  They have a taste similar to chickpeas in the soup.
