|Pease pudding hot, pease pudding cold... Still much loved and eaten in the North East pease pudding is sadly overlooked elsewhere but is an easy and satisfying dish to make with Split Yellow Peas.|
Pease pudding - also known as pease porridge, pease pottage or even "Geordie hummus" - is extremely easy to cook and very, very satisfying to eat – hot or, as the nursery rhyme says, cold.
Traditionally pease pudding is served with pork and was often cooked in a muslin with the ham. My version is vegetarian, it’s really good hot with roast vegetables and leafy greens or cold in a sandwich – much in the way you might use houmous. If you eat meat, search out a stottie and some good quality ham.Preparation time: 5 mins | Cooking time: 60 mins | Total time: 65 mins

This easy and versatile dish makes the most of seasonal fruit for a superb late summer dessert - or even a whole meal! It's especially lovely made with little yellow mirabelle plums, which have a wonderful honeydew sweetness.
