So peas are the most evil vegetable in existence (and if you don’t think so, you are wrong). As I said in an IG comment this week: peas hide under your bed so they can murder you in your sleep and they kick puppies for sport.
And if peas are the most evil of evil, then parsley is the evil understudy.
Really, what do people *do* with parsley apart from pushing it to the side of their plate and trying to ignore it?
I know that this sounds like the beginning to a terrible joke, but I do have a serious answer for you: almonds.
I’m going to be completely honest and tell you – I had no idea that immature almonds came in a fuzzy green pod. It’s not something that had ever crossed my mind. So when I saw some, I had to buy them.
Green almonds appear very briefly in early spring, and consist of a fuzzy outer shell and a soft white seed surrounded by a jelly-ish inner. After they are harvested, they eventually shrivel and harden and lose their furry coats.
