Winter is here!

It’s cold, it’s dark, but it’s finally the festive season! Everyone is in good spirits and it’s definitely the best time of year to be cooking hearty meals for the whole family. Nothing makes Christmas more special than spending time together over food!

The fields are too cold for pea planting, but the farmers will be planning for February when they can finally begin sowing the seeds for next year. It’s really important to plan for the next year, as the peas that are harvested will be feeding the nation until 2019!

Now Winter is here to stay, 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. If you want to jazz up your brussels on Christmas Day, why not give the Peas and Brussels Sprouts a go? Or, for a fantastic starter, there’s also a Cream of Pea Soup!

Have you discovered a great recipe using the Great British pea? We’d love to see how you have used the healthy green ingredient in your cooking. Share with us by tweeting @YesPeas!

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...
