School is out and summer is upon us!

Our mighty growers have been hard at work over the last month harvesting 35,000 hectares of peas – that’s equivalent to about 70,000 football pitches - to feed the nation for the year ahead and we think it’s only right to celebrate their gallant efforts with a reci-pea or two in August.

Light up the BBQ, invite the neighbours round and show off those al fresco dining skills with Spicy Beef and Pea Patties, kebabs accompanied by our Pea, Chickpea and Pistachio Couscous or BBQ Grilled Halloumi with a salad of Peas, Pine Nuts, Broad Beans and Rocket.

School is out for the summer and we’ve got lots of exciting and nutritional recipes for your little ones – did you know, just one serving of freshly frozen garden peas and petits pois contains as much vitamin C as two large apples!? Have a go at our Fish Goujons with Pea Puree and Potato Wedges, Cheesy Pea and Bacon Fritters and Pea Chilli in Taco Shells – or just when you think peas can’t get any more exciting, how do you feel about Pea Ice Cream?
