Superbly firm and nutty Carlin peas: an excellent British substitute for chickpeas or Puy lentils. Cooked and ready to use.
Great Taste Award-winning Carlin peas, grown organically in Shropshire. Cooked and ready to use. Firm and superbly nutty, Carlin peas make an excellent British substitute for chickpeas or Puy lentils. The story goes that in the Elizabethan age, a Spanish ship was shipwrecked off Newcastle, and bags of seeds were washed ashore and planted by curious farmers. Since then, they’ve become a Northern favourite – and deserve to be used everywhere!
How to prepare
Drain and rinse thoroughly. The peas are ready to use, hot or cold. Add to stews, curries or salads, or use to make hummus. To heat, add to your dish at the very end of cooking and heat through for 1-2 mins.
