Anyone with a mushy pea recipe?
« on: October 17, 2007, 04:30:15 PM »
We went to London last year and it was my first taste of mushy peas.  I fell in love...  I'm craving them terribly now and would love a mushy pea recipe.  I'll feel stupid if it's just "take the peas and mush them."

Just combine cooked peas in a blender with butter, cream, salt and pepper.

The peas used for mushy peas are marrowfat peas- like they make good peasoup out of. They are not just squished green or early peas like we typically serve in the US.

World Market has Bachelor's Mushy Peas in a can- quite edible. Some grocery may also be able to order you what you want.

do you mean peas PORRIDGE?

you remember the old nursery rhyme:
pease porridge hot
pease porridge cold
pease porridge in the pot nine days old.
some like it hot
some like it cold
some like it in the pot nine days old.

sorry, couldn't resist >:D

anyhoo - i THINK it is made with dried peas (like the kind you use for split pea soup) that you cook and then puree.
