english peas advice

Down here in Texas, it's rare to find freshly shelled english peas. I did, however, at the Asian supermarket, of all places. They seemed very fresh, average size (not petite), and smelled very 'green'. I boiled them, then I boiled them some more. Don't laugh...after about an hour they were still very al dente. Is it me, or the peas? I have only had this experience with some old hard dried beans before. I promise you, these were not dried. Help!
Fortunately, they were cheap, but I still have two bags left that I put in the freezer, and I'd like to put them to good use. Thanks!
