Peas Pudding Recipe:
  • 1 lb package yellow split peas
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Wash peas and put in a cloth bag. Do not pack tightly. Place bag in pot with a quart of water. and soak overnight*.

Next day replace water and bring the pot to a full boil and then turn heat down to a slow boil. Keep water boiling, for approximately 1 1/2 hours. When peas are done, remove and squeeze bag to get out all water. Turn peas into a dish, add the butter, salt and pepper, mixing until butter is melted. Serve with salt meat and cabbage (Jiggs Dinner).

*We soak our peas overnight with our salt meat and cook them with the salt meat and vegetables as well.

Note: In Newfoundland it called “Peas Pudding” not Please Pudding, but no matter what it is called it taste great!
