Organic Yellow Split Peas were domesticated before 6000 BC in the East. They spread through Asia and the Mediterranean. Both the Greek and Roman civilizations used dried peas as part of their staple diet.
Split peas are most commonly used in soups, stews and curries. They can also be used to make dips, spreads, stuffing and are primarily used to make dhal in India.
NOTE: Before use, all beans should be soaked in cold water overnight or for at least ten hours. Make sure you cover the beans with a large volume of water because they will swell up considerably. When ready to cook, discard the soaking water and briefly rinse the beans under running water. This process is important as to reduce burping, flatulence and abdominal discomfort.
We recommend storing them in a air tight container in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.
