My least favorite vegetable

March 31, 2008

I once wrote that there’s no vegetable I don’t like, but since then I’ve realized that sugar snap peas are teh suck. They’re slimy cooked and chalky raw. They’re a Frankenstein’s monster of the veggie world: some agronomist named Dr Lamborn bred them from a mutant green pea and a snow pea, specifically to look nicer and have straighter pods. After 10 years of marketing, the damn things have taken over the world of frozen foods. Oh, and they’re patented — every sugar snap pea in the world comes from seeds hybridized by the Syngenta company.
