Notes on Pea Storing, Soaking and Cooking
Bags of peas should be kept in a dry place. If they are allowed to become damp, chemical changes occur within the peas which affect the cooked product.
We recommend that new unopened bags are not mixed with old, opened bags. The mixing of old and new peas will result in some of the cooked peas being harder than others.
Peas are living product and are harvested in August. During the course of the year they can lose some moisture content, and therefore may require a longer soaking time, or more soda.
In spite of note 3 however, the danger of over-soaking cannot be over emphasised. Over soaked peas are difficult to soften. The danger of over-soaking is particularly present in hot weather. This is because a warmer environment speeds up the internal changes that a pea undergoes during soaking. In hot weather, peas should not be soaked for longer than 8 or 9 hours.
When soaking peas, please ensure that the soda, water and peas are mixed thoroughly, allowing all of the soda to dissolve. General soaking time is 12 hours (overnight), this may vary. We advise you to check the peas have fully soaked before cooking.
Peas should be cooked in a stainless steel or enamelled pan. The use of other materials (galvanised or aluminium pans) will result in discolouration.
After soaking, all traces of soda must be washed from the peas; we recommend the use of running water before cooking.
During both cooking and soaking, all the peas must be, and remain covered with water. When cooking peas, the pan should be covered with a lid; failure to do this will result in some of the cooked peas being harder than others.
Like any natural product, product varies from batch to batch, consequently adjustments in steeping time and soda quantities may be necessary.
Should be kept in a cool place.
