I was thinking about that last post I did and the ref to baked beans; on reflection I can't recall having many baked beans as a kid but do remember 'farter' peas. Many here will remember these beasts ... dried peas left to soak overnight, with a bicarb of soda tablet chucked-in for good measure - the peas would be cooked as part of the meal the next day.


Would that be what we call "Steepy peas" ?

Still have them now with a Shy's pie although we cheat and buy tins.  As my late Auntie Dot used to do an Oxo is dropped in with the peas to create gravy. Happy days 🙂
