Can you eat sugar snap peas raw?
- Green beans contain poisonous phasing and should therefore not be eaten raw. The thought that there is a similar problem with sugar snap peas is therefore obvious.
- However, it is perfectly safe to eat sugar snap peas raw. Only remove the ends and any threads on the sides of the sugar snap peas beforehand.
- If you buy sugar snap peas outside of the European season, the vegetables usually come from Africa or South America. Since pesticides are often used, you should wash the raw sugar snap peas thoroughly before eating.
