|Forager Leanne Townsend uses Bold Bean Co's jarred carlin peas in their stock to create this comforting autumn ragout, topped with chanterelles - or oyster mushrooms - to complement the earthy, nutty flavours of the carlin peas.|
Carlin peas are a hearty and delicious pulse perfect for autumn and winter dishes. Grown as part of diverse rotations on British arable farms, they play a valuable role in reducing the climate impact of farming and building soil health and fertility.
