Sticky and Sweet: Syrup, the Natural Treat

ON THE COVER
Spring is the ideal time to try sugar snap peas, which get their name from their sweet flavor and “snappy” crunch. A cool season vegetable, they grow on climbing plants, which require a trellis or support structure. At your local farmers market, choose fresh, tender bright-green pods. Peas are one of the oldest cultivated vegetables and in the United States were planted by both Christopher Columbus and Thomas Jefferson.
