Looked at loads of recipes online and none come close to what I know as pease pudding - most of them don't even use ham FFS!
Anyone with a tried and tested recipe for proper pease pudding?
make a stock from boiling a ham shank with carrot, turnip, leeks and a couple of bayleaves, about 2 hrs.
12oz yellow split peas soaked overnight and thorougly washed and drained.
peas into a pan with a peeled medium sized potato and a similar szed peeled onion, both left whole.
add 2 cloves of garlic peeled and left whole.
cover the peas by about 1" and add 2 whole cloves and a bouqui garni (you can buy them ready made)
bring to the boil then simmer covered for about 90 mins.
drain the stock off, remove the herbs and cloves. transfer to a food processor and add 1 oz of butter, then salt and black pepper to taste.
Process. eat either hot or cold with the ham shank
