Hodmedods British Pulses and Grains

The really special thing about Hodmedos pulses and grains is that they are all grown in Britain, and quite often in the Eat Anglian region. These are all foods which were once a mainstay of the British diet, but have been marginalised by the commercial food industry. What they represent is a far more sustainable way of getting our protein: getting your potein from imported pulses, processed foods or meat is much less efficient. Hodmedods-a massive step towards a more sustainable diet.

Whole Blue Peas, 500g

Whole Blue Peas are the same peas used for Split Green Peas but with the skin left on. They're a firm but tasty pea with plenty of bite and superb in spicy dishes

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

Soak overnight, drain and rinse. Place in a pan with plenty of water, bring to boil, cover and simmer for 45-60 minutes until tender.

NOTES ON COOKING DRIED PULSES

Cooking times for dried pulses will be longer at higher altitudes and when cooking with hard water or older pulses.

Adding bicarbonate of soda during soaking and/or cooking will soften the pulses and reduce the cooking time.

Cooked pulses can be used immediately or frozen for later use.
