British Marrowfat Peas - 500g
Our Kabuki variety Marrowfat Peas are perfect for classic mushy peas but also fantastic in soups, dips and casseroles.
Grown by Andy Howard at Bockhanger Farms, Kent.
Marrowfat peas make the best mushy peas but are also great for dips, salads and even crunchy snacks. They pair very well with wasabi or horseradish.
Soak overnight, drain and rinse. Place in a pan with plenty of water, bring to boil, cover and simmer for 40 to 50 minutes until tender.
Our current batch of marrowfat peas may contain the occasional poppy seed head (these are nontoxic and can be easily removed during soaking)

About the brand
Nick Saltmarsh, Josiah Meldrum and William Hudson founded Hodmedod in 2012 to supply beans and other products from British farms.
We work with British farms to source a range of top quality ingredients and delicious foods. We’re particularly interested in searching out less well-known foods, like the fava bean – grown in Britain since the Iron Age but now almost forgotten – and black badger peas.
The Great British Beans project
We founded Hodmedod following the successful Great British Beans trial project to stimulate and assess demand for indigenous pulses.
For the trial project we bought a tonne of British-grown split fava beans, packed them up at the kitchen table, and distributed them through community groups and local shops. Each pack contained a postcard with a short questionnaire on the back to collect feedback on the beans.
The response to the beans was overwhelmingly positive, inspiring us to establish Hodmedod to continue and develop supply of British-grown fava beans and other products.
