How to make Peas with Lettuce and Fresh Mint

I taught this class last night at the Kitchen Conservatory, a wonderful cookware store in St Louis.  The menu included Pine nut Encrusted Salmon with Fresh basil, Potatoes Dauphinois and Clafouti.  The peas were also part of the class here is the recipe

In a sauce pan, melt the butter and saute the carrots until they begin to soften, add the sugar and caramelize slightly.

Add the chicken stock, lemon juice, salt, and pepper-bring to the boil.

Add the peas and cook until tender, add the lettuce chiffonade and continue to cook until the lettuce wilts.

Remove from the heat and top with chopped fresh mint.
