Once it starts boiling off the flame .

Add the shelled peas and blanch  for 2  mins . [not more than 2 minutes]

Remove the peas in the colander and pass cold water through it to stop further cooking .

Drain off all the excess water completely.

Quickly start packing the peas .Dont keep out at room temperature for long time .

Pack it in resealable bags /air tight containers .

If packing in bags remove the excess air before sealing .
