Serves 8

3 slices bacon, finely chopped
2 bags (16 ounces each) frozen peas
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
Salt and pepper, to taste

1. In a large skillet over medium heat, render the bacon until crisp. Transfer it to a plate lined with paper towels. Discard all but 1 tablespoon fat from the pan.

2. Tip the peas into a colander and rinse them with cold water to separate them. Add peas and sugar to the skillet. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until the sugar starts to thicken into a glaze.

3. Stir in bacon, mint, salt, and pepper.
