Peas

Peas

I planted 'Alaska' peas this year. They have done very well, and I have lots of pods at various stages of growth. Of course, I have never grown peas before, nor do I really eat them on a regular basis. So I have a couple of questions: (1) When are they ready to be picked? and (2) What do I do with them once I've picked them? Shell them, I gather, but then what? Do I boil them as with canned or frozen peas, or are they good to eat raw? Thanks!
