Mushy Peas

Last night we were watching a food programme on TV where they were talking about Peas. They were saying that Peas were a versatile ingredient that could be used in many recipes. Then my husband said that we had not had Mushy Peas for ages, and I agreed with him . Now we both fancy some mushy peas but we don't know if you can still get them. We used to buy them in packets where you had to soak the dried peas for several hours and then cook them until they were soft. I have not seen these packs of dried peas in the supermarket for ages, can you still buy them?

How about from a fish and chip shop?

I love fish and chips, but I was thinking about cooking the peas myself and using them with other dishes.

@millie02 There are a few recipes on the internet to make them from scratch

I expect so, but more likely in large supermarkets or health food shops like Holland & Barrett. If I want mushy peas I just buy a tin! I have no patience to be faffing around. I have a pea recipe book which I got for free last year. I really should have a gander, but I stopped eating peas due to being on a diet which didn't allow them. I love peas, mushy or otherwise!

Such a shame that you cannot eat peas anymore.

Mushy peas aren't an Australian dish although they might be now. However I've never had them so don't know if you buy them or not. I'm sure you can.

I will keep looking. It is interesting to know which foods are popular in different countries.
