Capucijner Peas - 2lbs
Capucijner peas are a classic Dutch heirloom pea, named after the Capuchin monks who grew them there in the 1500s. Cooked in water, they make their own thick gravy while keeping their shape and remaining firm, yet creamy. With a delicate pea flavour, they can also be used in place of pinto or black beans, making them incredibly versatile. Use them in soup, curries, stews, casseroles, refried in tacos, or served as a side dish with caramelized onions and diced bacon or ham, these peas triple in size when they cook, so a little goes a long way!
