Snacking on Pea Shoots

I could bear it no longer.  I had to try some of my raw pea shoots.  The small trays I sowed last week looked ready to me, so I nabbed one.

Here we have pea shoots after ten days of growth, approximately 2-3 inches in length.


I snipped off the shoots with scissors.  And behold:



They taste delicious, they really do.  Chewy, sweet, tender and with a pleasantly bitter aftertaste.  Quite remarkable.



Don't think I ate them, just like that? Here's the proof:



Try it yourself.  Grow some pea shoots, immediately.  Here's how I do it.

Rather than putting the remnants straight onto the compost, I thought I'd try another little experiment.  Can you "regrow" pea shoots after you've trimmed them?  It would be easy to google this, but more satisfying not to.
