Can I freeze fresh sugar snap peas?

I came into an abundance of fresh sugar snap peas that I'll never be able to eat before they spoil. Can I freeze them? Should I blanch them briefly first?

My instinct would be to blanch them first.

I wonder if you could pickle some?

YES ! You absolutely can pickle them. I just did a batch a couple of days ago. I got the recipe I used somewhere on line...

I ate a whole bowl of them raw last night with taziki and hummus, and made them for dinner tonight - so yummy! But they will need to be frozen or used by Tuesday.

So tonight for a change, lightly blanch, then eat with good-ol-Lipton's Onion Soup Dip. (We make with plain yogurt) The saltiness plays off the sweetness of the peas.

They really don't freeze very well (unlike regular peas, which do). They lose their "snap." We grow them, but only eat them in season. I wish they did freeze well!
