Organic Yellow Peas
This wonderful product is grown and cleaned by Tamarack Farms near Riding Mountain. Yellow peas are a helpful addition to organic rotations because they pull enough nitrogen from the atmosphere for themselves to grow, and also leave extra nitrogen for crops in the following year. We’re particularly fond of these little guys, because Tamarack Farms also grows naked oats for us, and the happiest oats seem to be grown as an intercrop with yellow peas!
These yellow peas are left whole, but with a little bit of a longer cook time they can be used in the same was as a yellow split pea. We love them in rich wintery soups, make them into a very flavourful hummous, and we toss them into curries and stews or anything we’d usually use chickpeas for!
