Why we love this
These Black Badgers are a classic brown Carlin Pea, also known as Black or Grey Peas and popularly served as Parched Peas in Lancashire, simply boiled up and eaten with vinegar and salt.
Carlin Peas have a superb nutty flavour and firm texture, making a great alternative to chickpeas or Puy lentils. They're great in soups, stews, curries and salad, pairing well with roast vegetables.
Soak overnight - or quick-soak by placing in boiling water, taking it off the heat and leaving for one hour.
After soaking, rinse, place in a pan with plenty of water, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 40 to 45 minutes until tender.
Adding bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) when soaking will result in softer cooked peas. Cooked peas can be used immediately or frozen.
