"I was trying to come up with something more than just plain butter to put on peas, and since I was serving them with a chicken dish using balsamic vinegar I thought I'd give it a shot. I didn't use a full pound of peas as is written because I didn't have that much, but for the amount of sauce a pound should be about right."
