Marrowfat peas anyone?

mariekeac | Oct 24, 2007 08:50 PM

My absolute favorite beans/legumes are from back home. (holland) Don't think they are actually dutch, but haven't seen them anywhere else.... we call them kapucijners... Think in England they call them Marrowfat Peas. (they're more a type of pea I guess) they look like large brown peas.(They also sell the 'young' ones which are still green) Kind of taste like soft chickpeas... they can be eaten warm & cold and they're soooo good!!! really miss them....
anybody know about these???
