    Peas

    Hi,

    Do you call it "peas"?

    Is "I am going to buy peas" correct?

    Yes, it is. We'd be just as likely to say that we were going to by some peas.

    Re: Peas

    We always buy ours from the frozen food cabinets.

    Re: Peas

    We prefer to pick ours from the garden, where they're producing like crazy right now.

    Re: Peas

    Fair enough, and I envy you, but for those unable to grow their own and eat them straight from freshly-picked pods, the commercially deep-frozen product is the next-best thing.

    Re: Peas

    We grow snap peas with edible pods and freeze as many as we can. When we run out of our own frozen peas, we buy them too. And I agree, frozen peas are far better than canned.

    Re: Peas

    ... better even than fresh peas in the pod which have been sitting on the supermarket shelf or market stall for several days.
