Brown Sugar Is The Key To Sweetening Up Dull Canned Peas
Canned peas can be pretty bland, but brown sugar is a great way to boost the flavor. The subtle sweetness and distinctive molasses notes are a perfect complement to the vegetable.
Simply drain the liquid from the canned peas, rinse them to remove excess sodium, add them to a pan on the stove, and then add some water, butter, and brown sugar.
Start with a tablespoon of sugar for each can of peas, and after tasting, you can add some more if you like. Even a modest amount should elevate the overall flavor.
Green peas are among the vegetables with the highest sugar content, so brown sugar will enhance their natural sweetness. Your dish will have a perfect blend of savory and sweet.
