When developing our Creamy Peas with Ham and Onion recipe, we wanted to find a method for cooking and flavoring the peas at the same time. We found that simply simmering the peas in a flavorful sauce allowed them to quickly absorb the sauce’s flavor. To intensify the flavor of the peas, we added a sweet ingredient like red onions. Finally, we liked the way the ham’s salty flavor contrasted with the sweet peas.

Serves 4 to 6

Because the cream is reduced to the proper consistency before the peas are added to the pan, the peas should be cooked with the cover on. The ham and onion add plenty of sweetness, so this recipe doesn’t require any sugar.
