"I got this recipe in a TOH book. I've been making this for many years. My husband loves it when I make it. His favorite meal is creamy meatloaf, homemade mashed potatoes, and these yummy peas. I also make a blueberry cobbler for dessert."

"First time ever making creamed peas and they turned out so good! Great, quick and easy side dish. Served it with salmon patties made from the fish my husband caught yesterday in the San Juans . . . ."

MY REVIEW

"This is wonderful! I was impressed by two things - 1, the sauce did not become grainy after boiling, and 2, the sugar improved the flavor of the sauce 100%. The only thing I did different was not precook the peas. I used frozen, placed them in cold water to thaw, drained well the put them in as I heated the sauce up. They were perfect. Thank you so much for this recipe!"
