   It is recommended that sugar snap and Chinese edible
   pods be frozen for best quality.
   
   Quantity: An average of 31-1/2 pounds (in pods) is
   needed per canner load of 7 quarts; an average of 20
   pounds is needed per canner load of 9 pints. A bushel
   weighs 30 pounds and yields 5 to 10 quarts--an average
   of 4-1/2 pounds per quart.
   
   Quality: Select filled pods containing young, tender,
   sweet seeds. Discard diseased pods.
   
   Procedure: Shell and wash peas. Add 1 teaspoon of salt
   per quart to the jar, if desired.
   
   Hot pack--Cover with boiling water. Bring to a boil in
   a saucepan, and boil 2 minutes. Fill jars loosely with
   hot peas, and add cooking liquid, leaving 1-inch
   headspace.
   
   Raw pack--Fill jars with raw peas, add boiling water,
   leaving 1-inch headspace. Do not shake or press down
   peas.
