Whole Yellow Peas (pisum sativum l.) are part of the
legume family. Whole Peas are husked and about 1/4 of an inch wide
and pale yellow in color. Split Peas have a mild flavor and soft
texture. The Split Pea has more of an earthy flavor than the Whole
Dried Pea, similar to the lentil in versatility and nourishment.
Whole Dried Peas have a history going back some 10,000 years.
Originally from the Middle East, Peas soon spread through the
Mediterranean region and on to India and China. The cultivation of
Peas in Europe helped to stave off a famine in England in 1555. Peas
are most commonly used in their split form.
Peas often break down while cooking and therefore
they make an excellent choice for thick and hearty soups. Peas can
also be used to make a mock cream soup for people avoiding dairy
