Picked peas

Our peas were ready (we had a sneaky taste the week before) and we decided to cook with them. Sometimes children take the vegetables home, sometimes we give them away but it is nice to be able to try out recipes with them.

It wasn’t easy thinking of something child friendly to cook with peas but a quick google led me here http://www.peas.org/recipes-pea,-ham-and-cheese-muffins.html.

I thought they sounded quite nice but Victoria (Our fantastic TA that leads our cooking club) looked a bit dubious!

Anyway, we pressed ahead, the children picked all the peas and enjoyed eating as many as they put in the bowl! Recipe duly followed and the muffins came out of the oven. Pretty good was the general consensus! Even a couple of teachers who tried them gave them the thumbs up!

What was really nice however was seeing the enthusiasm in which the children wanted to try the peas. Of the 12 children, 10 genuinely enjoyed them – 2 tried but really didn’t like them. Encouraging them to try – and enjoy the things that they have grown is the one of the most important things about the club.
