Sugar snap peas are here! Judging from our twitter feed, many people are unsure whether or not you can eat the pods. The answer is yes — but there is a small bit of prep you have to do first. Pinch the top stem between your thumb and finger and pull forward sharply. This will pull off the stem as well as the tough, fibrous bit that sits in the seam of the pea pod (see below). After that, you can pop the whole thing in your mouth.
