Pease pudding is a comforting savoury spread, often loaded into sandwiches or smoothed onto fresh bread, either hot or cold.
1Add the drained soaked yellow split peas, onion and stock to a large pan and simmer for one hour, with the lid loosely placed over.
2Stir occasionally to avoid sticking.
3After 1 hour, pour in 500ml just-boiled water, add the sea salt and black pepper and simmer for a further 30 minutes with the lid off.
4Ladle the softened peas into a highpowered jug blender or food processor (or use a hand blender), along with any remaining cooking liquid, and blitz until smooth.
5Spoon out into a bowl, or into a clean jar for easy fridge storage.
6Pease pudding will keep in the fridge for up to three days.
