I can remember loving these from an early age. My kids also love them especially when poured over a helping of mashed potatoes. Yum!
1- 15 oz can of sweet peas (or use about 2 c. frozen peas + 2/3 c. water or chicken broth)
2 T. butter or margarine
1/3 c. milk ( I think my grandma used evaporated milk and it was so good!)
2 T. cornstarch
1/2 t. sugar, optional
salt and pepper to taste
Bring peas and butter to a boil over medium heat. Combine the milk, cornstarch, sugar, salt, and pepper in a small cup or bowl. Add to the boiling peas and reduce to a simmer. Cook 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
