Mashed peas? This sounds like it could be an interesting concept and I can see how easily the peas would be to mash, but it still sounds a little weird...although, the sour cream could be what brings the peas into that fluffy mashed potato kinda state of creaminess. And cloves, well that's a flavor I'd never think to mix into peas but I do love it in other foods so I'm thinking it could work.

All we are saying is "give peas a chance" Sorry I couldn't resist. Seriously, mashed peas? I have to try these, the ingredients seem to be pretty straight forward, what have I got to lose? I'll try it as written first, and if need be give it a tweek here and there as I go along. Wish me luck.

Um...EWWW!! This does NOT look appetizing at all!! :(

This is not the recipe "Messy Monster Mash"! What gives?
