Marrowfat Peas

To celebrate the new year of the dragon, my buddy Pat decided to share the Irish treasure known as Marrowfat Peas. His family swears by this stuff, so I decided to give it a try. Although the name says Marrowfat, I don't believe this is cooked in bone marrow...though that would be mighty tasty.

The texture is pretty substantial and creamy having some decent pea flavor with a hint of sweetness and mint. Also, these things are like mutant peas not the tiny petit peas you see in the frozen section of your local mega mart. Pretty solid stuff and it kinda reminds me of split pea soup which I do love...
