Notes

  • This is Mom's version of creamed peas. While it uses canned peas, I also love my other version that uses frozen peas. You can find that recipe here.
  • Be sure to leave the peas undrained; you'll need the juice for the recipe.
  • I use two small saucepans for this recipe, while my mom uses a skillet instead. You can use whatever is readily available.
  • This makes enough for 2-4 people, so double or triple up the recipe if needed. 
  • Be sure to season with salt and black pepper.
