Pease Pudding

I have visited many countries yet I have never come across, or met anyone outside of UK who is aware of peas pudding. I remember, some 60 years ago, this green (and at times orange) mashed delight being offered as an additional item at the fish and chip shops - or with a pie. I think it may well have been as a result of food shortages during the 2nd world war.

As an accompaniment to ham, or cold bacon, it is delicious! Not only does it add a subtle and complimentary flavour to the meat, it also enhances the digestive process too. Those who enjoy ham, but then 'suffer for it', should take a little pease-pudding with it.

Just moved to Surrey and really miss pease pudding. I didn't like it as a child in the 70s but can't live without it now. Ham and Pease Pudding stotties - mmmmmm!

My favourite Icon of England has to be the Cornish Pasty.
