  38. ** In the July 31, 1898, issue of the Los Angeles Sunday Times

  39. Illustrated Magazine Section, one "Mid-Summer Cooking" recipe in the

  40. women's pages was for puree of green peas. It calls for both the peas and their pods (English spring peas work best), because the water in which the

  41. pods are cooked enhances the sweetness of the dish. Surprisingly, it makes

  42. a terrific reduced-fat guacamole-type dip to go with tortilla chips. Could

  43. it be that the creative sweet pea guacamole that Michael Roberts made

  44. 1980s was not the first?

  45. pureed peas were probably intended as a side dish to accompany meat or poultry.)

  47. Love And Peas," By Leilah Bernstein. !We got this recipe from the LA Times.
