Is it possible to freeze snow peas, as I have so many coming on at the moment.

Yes, you can freeze these peas. Pinch off the ends and pull to remove the strings along the seams of the pods before freezing. The peas must then be blanched before storing in the freezer.
To blanch, add 4 quarts of water to a pot and bring to a boil. Add 2 to 3 cups of pea pods to the boiling water and cover. Allow them to boil for exactly 2 minutes and remove promptly from heat. Drain off water and place the pea pods immediately in a bowl of ice water for 2 minutes. Remove from bowl and dry pea pods on paper towels.
Place the snow peas into freezer bags or containers, seal, label and store in the freezer.
