Dry Peas


Peas originated in Europe and would have been harvested dry and cooked as soup or porridge. They were non sweet peas such as those listed here. Also, peas would have originally all been tall plants and so most of these are fairly tall varieties except for Raisin Capucijners.

Raisin Capucijners

Raisin Capucijners are Dutch dwarf peas yielding large brownish seeds which you can cook as you would dry beans.
