I've always enjoyed reciting nursery rhymes, and often wondered about Pease Porridge . Thank you for the link*!
What I remember of the rhyme : Pease porridge hot, pease porridge cold, pease porridge in the pot 9 days old.
I have a couple of questions: Why would it be in the pot 9 days? Does it get refrigerated?
*It sounds almost like what I make during the wintertime - Split Pea Soup - except, instead of dried green split peas, yellow split peas are used. I grew up in the northeastern part of the USA. My Mother would make Split Pea Soup maybe once a year. I now live in Kentucky, USA, and I've never heard of any of my friends or co-workers making split pea soup.
