Dressed Green Peas

Ever had naked green peas?  Or, have you wondered why some taste better than others when they're all really the same?  To me, naked green peas is opening a can, heating it on the stove to a boil and serving it as a side dish.  But, to 'dress' them up for company, try the following.  It adds a bit of home cooking to canned vegetables.
1 can Le Sueur Very Young Small Sweet Peas, 15-Ounce
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Drain green peas. Add enough water to cover the peas in a medium sauce pan.  Bring to a boil. Simmer about 5 minutes or until most of the water is removed.  Add salt, pepper and butter.  Stir until butter is melted and serve.
