Fresh Pea Soup

Peas have always been one of my favorite vegetables.  Maybe because my mom never served them from a can when I was a kid, and they were always sweet, buttery and crisp.

Vibrant green, this soup is the very essence of the flavor of spring peas.  I use frozen peas because they are always frozen at the peak of their sweetness.  If you use fresh peas, be sure to use them as soon as possible after picking to preserve the sweet, fresh pea flavor.
