Ingredients for 8
1 lb/~450 g frozen or fresh sweet peas
1 cup heavy/single cream
1/4 c/~60g butter
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 bay leaves
Cracked black pepper for garnish
Set your Anova Precision Cooker to 185ºF/85ºC
In a small bowl, mix the cream, cornstarch, and nutmeg and whisk with a fork until the cornstarch is dissolved
Combine all of the ingredients in a zipper-locking bag or silicone pouch. We placed the cloves and bay leaves into a small spice sack to infuse without the worry of fishing them out later
Use the immersion method to release as much air from the bag as possible and seal
Submerge in the bath and set the timer for 1 hour, weighing down if necessary
Remove from the bath, transfer to a serving dish and stir. Garnish with cracked black pepper and enjoy!
