Our Fava Umami Paste is fermented in the same way as many soya bean ferments used for miso, black beans, soy sauce or tamari, but using fava beans instead of soy beans. It's made with just fava beans, water and salt, fermented with a koji of Lactobacillus delbrueckii, Aspergillus sojae and Zygosaccharomyces rouxii.
Our Black Badgers are a classic brown Carlin Pea, also know as Black or Grey Peas and popularly served as Parched Peas in Lancashire, simply boiled up and eaten with vinegar and salt. With their firm texture and delicious nutty flavour, Carlin Peas make an excellent British substitute for chickpeas.View full product details
