Sorting split peas

tubman | Jan 2, 202103:47 PM     6

Love split pea soup that I'm making it (and working with split peas) for the first time. Instructions in all recipes call for sorting and rinsing the peas. I had to Google to see what exactly you're supposed to be "sorting"--examining and pulling out any stones or skins.

After taking about 20 minutes to examine a pound of peas one tablespoon at a time, I found absolutely nothing. Has pea processing technology evolved to the point that sorting might no longer be necessary (but remains part of every legacy recipe), or did I just get lucky to wind up with a good batch?

Thanks!
