I'm actually not sure where I bought these wonderful peas from, or whether my wife bought them, but tonight I was looking to get a tea together, and these jumped out at me. I had just cooked a leg of lamb and some roasties, and was looking for something of the green variety to add some colour to rather a dull, but quite delicious plate.
Upon searching the net these peas are available in most Supermarkets. Tesco and Sainsbury's are neck and neck with the price at 38p each.
The first problem I had to overcome was opening the tin. Our tin openers have been hopeless lately, and it is a big operation getting into the tin themselves. I'm not sure where I heard that tin openers only appeared 40 years after tins, but if that is true they must have had some fun in the old days. I'm glad these days when I get tins with ring pulls on them. Life is so much easier!!
Anyway I eventually opened half the tin and poured the peas into the pan. Actually it was more spooned, into a pan. They were quite thick, so did not pour easily. They were a dull colour green, not very bright green like you get with fresh peas. But there again if you had been battered in the same way as these peas had, you probably would turn a different colour too!

This tin of 400g of mushy processed peas tasted delicious. The peas, although well mushed, had not been beaten to a pulp that they were unrecognisable. You could see some peas were still quite whole. The taste was delicious and you can always tell if they go down well - the plates are clean!! In this case I can say that all Mr and Mrs Stebiz et al. enjoyed these peas very much. I will certainly keep an eye out for them next time I'm out shopping. Probably have them next with fish and chips, that will truly tell me how good they are.
