Dill Peas in a Cast Iron Skillet

I have a large collection of Cast Iron Cookware. Maybe recipes cooked in Cast Iron taste better....... or maybe I just think that.
I also love Peas and I know that they're not for everyone. My wife does not like them. She grew up on a farm in Kansas and with a huge garden, they ate plenty of Peas.
