|The flamingo has landed! We're excited to offer pink Flamingo peas from the very first UK harvest.
These amazing pink Flamingo Peas are a new variety, named by you.
These split peas have the intensely orange-pink cotyledon, that shows as a subtle through the translucent white skin of the whole Flamingo peas.
Split pink peas make superb hummus and can be substituted in recipes for other split peas or chana dal. We look forward to hearing how you've cooked them!
Flamingo Peas can be cooked in just the same way as other split dried peas.
To cook simply cover the peas with water or stock, bring to the boil then simmer for 30 to 45 minutes. Pre-soaking speeds up cooking but isn't essential. The peas will get softer and softer as they cook.
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.
