New in! Our 2020 crop of Organic Black Badger Carlin Peas is now available.

One of Britain's best-kept secrets, Carlin Peas are a much-loved traditional food in the North of England and make a great alternative to chickpeas, with excellent flavour and texture.

Our Black Badgers are a classic brown Carlin Pea, also know as Black or Grey Peas and popularly served as Parched Peas in Lancashire, simply boiled up and eaten with vinegar and salt.

With their firm texture and delicious nutty flavour, Carlin Peas make an excellent British substitute for chickpeas.

      Cooking instructions

      Soak overnight - or quick-soak by placing in boiling water, taking it off the heat and leaving for one hour.

      After soaking , rinse, place in a pan with plenty of water, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 40 to 45 minutes until tender.

      Adding bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) when soaking will result in softer cooked peas. Cooked peas can be used immediately or frozen.

      Notes on Cooking Dried Pulses

      Cooking times for dried pulses will be longer at higher altitudes and when cooking with hard water or older pulses.

      Adding bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) during soaking and/or cooking will soften the pulses and reduce the cooking time.

      Cooked pulses can be used immediately or frozen for later use.

  • Grown in the Britain for at least 500 years, Black Badgers are also know as Carlin or Maple Peas. In Lancashire they're traditionally served "parched" - boiled and roast or soaked in vinegar - on Bonfire Night. They're celebrated in parts of Yorkshire on Carlin Sunday, the fifth Sunday in Lent, and know as Grey Peas in the Black Country, where they're often served with bacon.

    Carlin Peas are also popular with pigeons (and carp!) and occasionally known as Pigeon Peas but they're not to be confused with the entirely different tropical species Cajanus cajan, also popularly known as the Pigeon Pea.
