DRIED YELLOW PEAS, YELLOW PEAS
Whole Yellow Peas (Pisum sativum) are part of the legume family. Whole Peas are about 1/4 of an inch wide and pale yellow in color. They have a mild flavor and soft texture. Whole Dried Peas have a history going back some 10,000 years. Originally from the Middle East, Peas soon spread through the Mediterranean region and on to India and China. The cultivation of Peas in Europe helped to stave off a famine in England in 1555. Peas are most commonly used in their split form.
Peas break down while cooking and therefore they make an excellent choice for thick and hearty soups. Peas can also be used to make a mock cream soup for people avoiding dairy products.
Soak overnight. Rinse, and cover with fresh water. Bring peas to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 45-60 minutes. The longer this legume cooks, the more it will break down and cause soups to thicken.
