I've noticed that someone here in Auckland is selling 'Lancashire Parched Peas'.
Do we know what a parched pea is? This is from the advertisement. They are being sold along with the parched pea recipe!


Lancashire Parched peas recipe - handed down from the generations of our family master chef. This is the one that most of the fair grounds in Preston,Blackpool and surrounding areas use. For those that don't know about parched peas - they are a dark brown pea with a taste between a roasted potato & peanut, served hot with salt & vinegar,a taste to die for ! This recipe is so simple & easy,unlike most others it has the winning formula.

Although I was accidentally born in Cheshire, I've always thought of myself as a true Lancashire lass. But I never heard of those.

The parched peas or maple peas are a traditional Lancashire dish, they are called black peas in Bury and Bolton where they are the most popular, they are served hot on occasions like bonfire night etc. They are black peas soaked overnight and then simmered until they resemble a mushy pea.
'Parching' is now a defunct term for long slow boiling.

Thanks Stephanie. So a black pea must be a special type of pea?
