Are u supposed to wash dried lentils and peas?

cook411 | Feb 6, 2008 08:15 PM

I am going to try to make both a lentil and split pea soup (2 soups, not together). Am I supposed to wash these (when they are dry) before cooking them? Also, I am not really sure what recipes mean when they say to sort the peas or lentils?

Second, do you all typically put cream (or half and half) in split pea? Or just the broth?

Thanks!
