Method:

  • Soak the peas overnight. Next day boil them in three pints of unsalted water until tender.
  • Simmer the pork separately with a bouquet of herbs and the other vegetables.  
  • When the pork is tender, remove from the pot and keep hot.
  • Then sive the peas and add to the pork broth, from which all fat has been removed.
  • Serve the pork with the soup.
  • Small potatoes may be added to the soup during the last 20 minutes of cooking time if a more substantial dish is desired.
