Additional Information:
Split peas are an agricultural or culinary preparation consisting of the dried, peeled and split seeds of Pisum sativum, the pea.

The peas are spherical when harvested, with an outer skin. The peas are dried and the dull-coloured outer skin of the pea removed, then split in half by hand or by machine at the natural split in the seed’s cotyledon.

There are green and yellow varieties of split pea and are both high in protein and low in fat, with 1.6g of fat per 310 calories (1,318 kJ) serving. Most of the calories come from protein and complex carbohydrates. The split pea is known to be a natural food source that contains some of the highest amounts of dietary fibre, containing 25 grams of fibre per 100g portion.

Green and yellow split peas are commonly used to make pea soup or “split pea soup”, and sometimes pease pudding, which was commonly prepared in medieval Europe.

Yellow split pea is known as Lappeh in western Asia and particularly in Iran. It is the main ingredient of the Iranian food khoresh gheymeh, which is served on the side of white rice in Iranian cuisine. It is also an important ingredient in the famous Tabriz köftesii, a kofta speciality from northern Iran.

In north India, they are generally known as matar ki daal, sometimes used as a cheaper variation for the very popular chhole on stalls offering it.

Yellow split peas are most often used to prepare dal in Guyana, Suriname, Mauritius, South Africa, Trinidad and Tobago and Fiji. Referred to as simply dal, it is prepared similarly to dals found in India, but also may be used in a variety of other recipes.

Yellow split peas are also used to make a sweet snack in Beijing cuisine. Wandouhuang (豌豆黄) is a sweetened and chilled pease pudding, sometimes flavoured with osmanthus blossoms and dates.

In Europe, the Greek “Fava” is a dish made with yellow split peas pureed to create an appetizer or meze.

In the Caribbean split peas are a key ingredient in many dishes.

Storage Advice:
Dried beans & pulses last for years, However the older they are the longer they will take to cook. Canned beans last for years and fresh beans last about a week.

You can help dried and canned beans stay fresh longer by storing them in a cool, dark place at a temperature under 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

Fresh beans are best kept in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Once cooked, beans should be stored in a tightly closed container to keep out moisture and other contaminants and then placed in the fridge. Always place leftover product into a proper airtight container before storing in the fridge. For a long-term option, you can freeze your beans while preserving their taste if you use a freezer safe container.

Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.
