By Leah Koenig

My husband and I have a simple disagreement about green peas: I love them, he does not.

I eagerly await their arrival at the farmers' market, and arriving home feel immediately compelled to liberate the little green marbles from their pods and mix them with butter, mint and grated parmesan — or to braise them until wrinkled and tender in savory broth, or to stir them into curry. He could take them or leave them.

Fortunately for me and my green pea devotion, relationships are built on compromise.

Nearly all of the country's pea crop ends up frozen or in cans, so there is something particularly special about stumbling across the short-seasoned fresh variety in midsummer.

A cousin to other green pods like sugar snap and snow peas (but unrelated, except in name, to chickpeas or black eyed peas), green peas add a touch of sweetness and starch to dishes both simple and complex.

Maybe that's why this Middle Eastern native is now a staple of cuisines across the world, from Italy to India.
