You can also buy these peas canned but they are quite expensive and are so easy to make. These peas are also common in England as Pub Fare. I love them served with good Bangers (sausages) and a green saladWhat we call Baking soda in Canada is known elsewhere as bicarbonate of soda.
- Put the peas in a bowl, add baking soda, pour on the boiling water and soak overnight.
- Next day drain and barely cover the peas with water, bring to a boil and simmer until tender and soft apprx 15-20 minutes, drain.
- Add salt pepper pinch of sugar and the butter, stir and serve.
