  1. 1¼ cups white-wine vinegar
  2. 1¼ cups water
  3. 1 Tbsp. pickling salt
  4. 1 Tbsp. white sugar
  5. 1 lb. snow (or snap) peas, stemmed and strung
  6. 4 garlic cloves, sliced
  7. 1 or 2 small dried chiles, slit lengthwise
  8. 1 or 2 sprigs of fresh tarragon


  1. In a saucepan, bring to a boil the vinegar, water, salt, and sugar, stirring to dissolve the salt and sugar. Let the liquid cool.
  2. Pack the peas into a quart jar along with the garlic, the hot pepper or two, and the tarragon. Cover the peas with the cooled liquid, and close the jar with a plastic cap.
  3. Store the jar in the refrigerator for at least two weeks before eating the peas. Chilled, they will keep for months.
