In case you missed "What is Real Food" here's a recap...
I know "Real" food may not seem like as much fun as the sugary, chemically, DIY recipes out there on the internet.  This is why REAL Food Friday is so unique.  This is the place to share your unprocessed, gmo-free, locally grown and/or fair trade posts. Here's a great reference from Food Myths.
 We are trying to make a difference 1 recipe at a time!

If your post includes items like *margarine, *granulated sugar, *food dye, packaged baking mixed with ingredients that you cannot pronounce (betty crocker, duncan hines, pillsbury, bisquik, general mills) then it WILL be deleted.

Time to link up your Real Food posts!  
The party runs from Thursday at 7pm EST through Monday at Noon.
Please follow your hosts and consider adding the Real Food Friday button.

NEW Heirloom PEAS & More

This is the wonderfully sweet, edible-pod pea so popular with consumers and gardeners. The delicious, tender pods are great raw (eaten before you ever leave the garden), stir-fried, or in salads. They also freeze very well.
Produces a huge number of 4" delicious pods which are harvested and eaten when the pods are flat, before the seed forms. Short, 28" vines easy to manage. resists mildew, pea virus, and common wilt.  Excellent freezer variety. Grow on a trellis.

Vigorous bush plants, heavy yields and  
fine-flavored peas. A great home garden variety.  
An heirloom from 1908.
Pods are 3 inches with 5 or 6 peas.
Fine sweet flavor when picked young. Compact 18 to 20 inch plant does not require staking.

Desiree Dwarf Blauwschokkers Pea  
Stunning violet-blue pods are produced on lovely little bush plants that do not require staking. The delicious peas are perfect for soups and stews, or pick small and these can be used as a snow pea.  
A great addition originally from Holland.

Tall, 3'- 5' plants are covered with very long rope-like flowers that are a deep, brilliant red color. One of the most striking plants for any garden and so easy to grow. Amaranth is one of our favorite crops! A good seed producer, too. This is a very old heirloom, a pre-1700 variety, that was very popular. Leaves are tasty as cooked greens.

This variety is called "Cabbage Collards" by southern Old-Timers, because it makes loose heads that are dark green and slow bolting.
Tender leaves are very delicious; a popular heirloom that is fast growing.
