This week, I picked up my share of produce at Wickham Farms CSA. This is my second year participating in the CSA and I am still as crazy for it now as I was last year.  



I am working hard to eat more fruits and vegetables, and the CSA is helping me work towards that goal.  It actually relaxes me to look at my produce and decide what recipes to try out.



In week one, there were the snap peas.  I was searching for some creative way to prepare them, so I took to the internet to find an enticing recipe. On Allrecipes.com I came across a recipe that combined snap peas with bacon, balsamic vinegar, and sugar. I could not, could not! fathom how it would taste. It was either going to be fabulous or a total failure.  



Undaunted, I forged ahead with Bacon and Balsamic Glazed Sugar Snap Peas



Ingredients:





  • 1/4 pound bacon, minced




  • 1 1/2 cups fresh sugar snap peas




  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar




  • 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar (I just used table sugar, and no one knew the difference.)




  • salt and pepper to taste






Directions:



Cook the minced bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until the fat has rendered out and the bacon has begun to crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside, leave the bacon fat in the skillet. Add the sugar snap peas, and toss to coat with the fat. Cook and stir until just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Pour in the balsamic vinegar, sugar, and cooked bacon. Continue cooking until the balsamic has reduced, and the sugar has dissolved, about 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.



They were fabulous.
