    FLKeysJen's Note:

    From "Dinner at Buckingham Palace" by Charles Oliver, who worked for the British Royal Family. "If fresh peas are available, cook one cup in water until soft and rub them through a sieve into the soup. Should they be very young and small, include the pods."

      Rich pea soup was brilliant. I used a pretty lean salt pork and rendered most the fat from it then added the veggies ( I did use the green and white of the leek) cooking till tender at which point I just added the dry split peas water stock and herbs.While the sieve is a good way to puree an immersion blender works even better. be sure to remove the bay leaf first. Seasoned with lots of black pepper. I normally wouldn't add sugar, butter or cream but was curious on the taste. It came out rich, creamy and comforting good. Thanks Jen.
      Made for ZWT #8 Lively Lemon Lovelies.
