Traditional Newfoundland side dish. This recipe came from the package for an authentic Newfoundland pudding bag. When I was a kid my grandmother made this with Sunday dinner and the taste brings back good childhood memories. note: prep and cook time does not include soaking overnight


  1. Wash peas, soak in water overnight, then rinse.
  2. Place peas in pudding bag (can use thin towel or cloth).
  3. Tie bag - allowing room for expansion
  4. Cook in salted water for approximately 2 hours.
  5. Remove bag from pot and squeeze out excess water
  6. Remove peas from bag and mash with butter, salt and pepper.
  7. You can press the mixture into a curved cereal bowl, then turn over and tap the bottom to remove. This will give the pease pudding a nice domed shape.
