How to Cook Green Split Peas
Cooking green split peas couldn’t be any easier. Start by filling a pot with a cup of Green Split Peas and 3 cups of water, bringing them to a boil. Once, boiling turn your stove to a simmer for 30 to 40 minutes until the peas are tender. Be sure to note, these dried split peas don’t plump in size when cooked. The biggest mistake many people make when cooking split peas, as well as other beans, is to add salt to your cooking water. The salt causes the outer coat of the pea to harden, which prevents them from softening at all. So our main tip in cooking our green split peas is to always add any salt or seasonings after your peas have reached your desired consistency. Once your split peas have reached that perfect tender consistency, it's imported to blanch them or immediately run them under ice cold water so that you prevent carry over cooking, this important step also helps to preserve that beautiful green color in your peas!
