Wrinkled peas are mostly grown for freezing but if not harvested in time they go to waste. Not these ones!
Tasty, versatile and easy to cook, split wrinkled peas don’t need to be soaked and add a sweet, grassy flavour to dips, soups, stews and salads. They make excellent dal too.
We're still experimenting with ways of cooking these peas ourselves but they can be substituted in recipes for other whole peas, especially whole yellow or blue peas. We look forward to hearing how you've cooked them!
Grown at Great Glemham Farms in Suffolk's Alde Valley.

Wrinkled Peas can be cooked in just the same way as other whole dried peas.
To cook simply cover the peas with water or stock, bring to the boil then simmer for 25 to 30 minutes. Pre-soaking speeds up cooking but isn't essential. Split wrinkled peas cook to a fairly firm texture - for a softer cooked pea add bicarbonate of soda during soaking and/or cooking.
Cooking times for dried pulses will be longer at higher altitudes and when cooking with hard water or older pulses.
Adding bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) during soaking and/or cooking will soften the pulses and reduce the cooking time.
Cooked pulses can be used immediately or frozen for later use.
