Trying to Find Whole Yellow (Dried) Peas.

SherBel | Oct 23, 2010 08:37 PM

For soup. It's making me crazy....they are readily available in every other city where I've lived, but in the Lower Mainland I'm having a hell of a time tracking them down.

(I can find split peas, no problem, but I soooooo prefer the whole peas, the soup has a much better texture with those little skins!) They've gotta be yellow, though. Green pea soup ain't happening in my house:)

I've tried:

Roots Organic (Maple Ridge)
Save On

In Winnipeg, my mom gets them at a bulk store, but I've never seen one in the Vancouver area? I'm in Maple Ridge, but I'll drive anywhere to find them....I have two luscious smoked pork hocks for the soup I'm craving, and no peas....I'm desperate!
