Mushy Peas


1 (16 oz Bag or 2.5 C) Split Peas, sorted and rinsed.
1 T Baking Soda + Boiling Hot Water for Soaking
4 C Water
2 T Butter or Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 t Salt
1 t Sugar, optional

Sort and rinse the split peas to remove any rocks. Places peas in the bottom of a large bowl and cover with lots of hot boiling water. Add baking soda and mix well. Let sit over night.

Rinse off the peas with a few changes of cold water. You do not want any baking soda on them since it has a bitter flavor. In a medium sauce pan, combine soaked peas and water. Bring to boil, then simmer for about 1.5 hours or until desired consistency is reached. Stir in butter, salt, and sugar if desired.
