Did you shell them all yourself? Growing up we used a piece of plywood with molding around 3 sides. We would shuck a bunch of pods onto the plywood and then just tipped it up and roll the (clean) peas in a bucket.
When I flew the coop I lived around tens of thousands of acres of vegetable farming. The growing season was long enough to have early peas and then a second crop after that, say lima beans or green beans. My buddies worked at the canning plants and would get us 5 gallon buckets of freshly blanched peas (or any other kind of vegetable you could think of) off the assembly line right before the veggies went into the cans.
Ever try ******* guacamole? Use peas, not avacados.
