Tough strings on the backs of peas can be unappetizing. Safely remove the strings from the peas by using a small paring knife to gently make a small cut on the end, but not all the way through. Then simply peel the strings off. Do not use your finger nail to cut the peas, this can cause dirt and bacteria to contaminate the peas.
