Autumn is here!

We think November has a bad rep – it’s colder, darker, and not quite the Christmas season. However, for those who don’t know, it’s also an incredibly important part of the year for the Great British pea!

This month, our pea farmers will be searching far and wide to find their pea seeds, and only the very best will do. The seeds can come from as far away as New Zealand, and it’s up to the growers to ensure that they get the very best for their crop. This is a big process, as these seeds will provide the UK with peas until 2019!

Here at YesPeas!, we’re really excited to announce our #FamilyTime initiative, which will be running throughout November. We know that eating meals together is one of the best ways to enjoy time as a family, and we think this should be celebrated! If you’re eating together and enjoying our favourite vegetable, why not take a snap and share it with the hashtag?

Now Autumn has settled in, we think you should try our spectacular seasonal recipes! Cooking is the best way to celebrate the humble pea, and our recipes are an easy go-to for hearty meals on chilly nights. There’s a delectable Individual Shrewsbury Lamb Pie with Peas, or you could have a go at the irresistible Vegetable Tagine with Peas. If you’re still peckish for dessert, go all out with this Pea Ice Cream.

I have been preparing a number of canapes recently and by far the most popular one has been the Pea Blinis with Parma Ham and Mint, closely followed by the Mini Sausage Toadies...
