Jenny Chandler wrote a post in her blog (http://jennychandlerblog.com) using our Yellow split peas! Thank you Jenny!
Τhis month I’d love to share this Greek island fava with you. It is rather confusing as traditional fava is not made with what we know as fava (broad beans) but with split yellow peas instead. I was stirred into action with this one when my mother brought me a packet of the split peas back from her recent holiday in Rhodes. You can use any yellow split pea but if you’re after the real thing you could go to the Ergon restaurant and deli in London or buy their beans on line.
A typical dish, taking us back to our childhood days, always prepared in different versions from one home to another. While not appreciating how tasty this dish was back then, growing older we have come to enjoy this delicious yet so simple recipe.
If you love beans in general then give this recipe a try. The lemon and the rosemary will be the cream of the crop of this dish.
If you’re looking for something to go well with your morning toast, or with your cheese platter during an evening gathering for wine, then this pumpkin marmalade is what you need. This is a wonderfully thick marmalade combining a sweet and spicy flavor at the same time. Using just 4-5 ingredients you will have.
Makes around 2kg marmalade.
No explanation needed for eggs. They are too delicious not to be eaten all the time, that’s for sure. When it comes to Staka cream though, questions might pop up.
Staka can be considered identical to the word “taste”.
Imagine the freshly boiled goat milk with a skin created on its surface called Tsipa. They gather this with great patience and then they boil it until it turns into a cream.
To this add salt, flour and water and blend them in low temperature. Then the cream is separated from the butter and is ready to use.
The difficult task of this recipe, is to collect all the right materials. Once you do this everything is quite simple. Choose juicy, fresh vine tomatoes, as this is the main ingredient that will boost the flavour of the dish.
Adding Extra Virgin Olive Oil will give the perfect finishing touch when it comes to taste. You can have this as an appetizer, as a side dish or as a salad.
