Yellow Split Peas vs green?

coll | Oct 10, 2005 03:19 PM

I just put on a pot of split pea soup with ham, made with the usual green split peas, and found a bag of yellow split peas in my pantry that I got at a food show last spring. I was thinking they would be something exotic like red or black lentils vs brown, but I just looked on the bag for a recipe, and it was "Split pea soup with ham". Any advantages or difference in using the yellow? It would be nice to have a special recipe to try them out.
