Fresh Garden Creamed Peas


My mom always had a large garden, and one of the first produce we'd enjoy from the garden was fresh creamed peas. I always liked this served with New Fried Potatoes and Goulash. Enjoy!

2 cups fresh garden peas
2 cups milk + 1/4 cup milk, divided
1/8 cup flour
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons butter

In a medium saucepan, cover garden peas with water. Bring to a boil on high heat, then simmer for 10-15 minutes until peas are tender. Drain water. Add 2 cups milk. Heat on low, being sure not to scald the milk. In a small bowl, whisk together remaining milk and flour until smooth. Add to heated milk and stir to thicken. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with dollops of butter. Serves 4.
