The Great British Pea Harvest Has Begun!

The annual British pea harvesting season has begun and UK growers, harvesters and freezers are working 24/7 this month to produce, harvest, shell and transport approximately 2 billion portions of peas.

Peas go from field to frozen as quickly as possible, with the majority in just 150 minutes.  A military operation! So, whilst our farmers are striving to get the perfect peas onto our dinner tables, why not try some of our seasonal recipes?

Our Pea And Blue Cheese Filo Tarts and Pea And Sun Dried Tomato Bread are ideal to enjoy as part of a picnic in the sun and our Peas on Toast make the perfect lunch or afternoon snack.

School is soon to be out for summer and we have plenty of ideas for the little ones.  Try our Pea, Sausage And Cherry Tomato Red Pesto Pasta, or our Cheesy Pea And Bacon Fritters will certainly please even the toughest of crowds!

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...
