Absolutely lush recipe, I used a good glug of rum on the raisins and blitzed them with the peas, works well and tastes even better!

Wow, these are seriously scrummy! I’m amazed they contain Carlin peas and I can’t wait to get my guests guessing what’s in them. I didn’t have any raisins so substituted with dried cranberries soaked in sloe gin. I cooked them on 190c as no temp given.
