Carlin Peas are 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.

Grown in the Britain for at least 500 years, Black Badger Carlin Peas are also know as Maple Peas. In Lancashire they're traditionally served "parched" - boiled and roast or soaked in vinegar - on Bonfire Night. They're celebrated in parts of Yorkshire on Carlin Sunday, the fifth Sunday in Lent, and know as Grey Peas in the Black Country, where they're often served with bacon.
Carlin Peas are also popular with pigeons (and carp!) and occasionally known as Pigeon Peas but they're not to be confused with the entirely different tropical species Cajanus cajan, also popularly known as the Pigeon Pea.
