Yellow Split Peas
Split peas are field peas, which are a variety of yellow or green peas grown specifically for drying. When these peas are hulled and then split in half along the natural seam, they become split peas, which encourages faster cooking and eliminates the need to presoak. Split peas can be stored in an airtight container for up to one year.
Split peas are high in protein and fibre, and low in fat. There is no need to soak split peas before cooking, and they turn very creamy when cooked through.
There are two types of split peas: green and yellow. Green split peas are sweeter and less starchy than the milder yellow split peas.
