Y'all really gotta try these, nice & light, piquent & crispy. I came upon a batch of plump & fat
sugar pea pods at the store that were crispy fresh, not limp flat ones. I used dried tarragon from
my garden and the flavor was still very nice. I wouldn't change anything except that thing about
letting them age for 2 weeks. I don't think they'll last that long. You'll notice that these are not
'canned' and must be kept refridgerated when not scarfed up by the whole famly at once. I bet you
could use Splenda for the sugar and few people would notice. Edrena, getting in her greens & very
nice fiber indeed
