Default Mushy Peas

Does anyone in the Charlotte NC area know where to buy Mushy Peas? They used to sell them at Harris Teeter/World Market but they seem to have discontinued them. Fish and Chips aren't the same without them

CCA british foods that was in Charlotte has closed her shop but she still ships or you can collect. Her site is: www.ccabritishfoods.com

Or you could try the South African Store on Independence which also sells british stuff :11229 East Independence Blvd.

I have the very same problem...my hubby loves chips, fish and mushy peas. Even bought a deep fat fryer to I could make him 'proper' chips. For the last 18th mths I have not been able to buy them anywhere...same with Batchelors processed peas. I used to be able to purchase them from several local retailers but now there's none to be found.

Try buying a packet of split peas,you can get them in most supermarkets usually with the spanish food's. I saw on another forum that they are like mushy peas. Must say I haven't tried them yet, but I've got some to try this week.

Thank you EM. I wonder if they'll deliver? The problem with buying heavy items in NYC is getting them back to the car or train.

Not a lover of sausages...I don't like eating chopped up meat...you don't know what's in there.

Try Jamie Oliver's recipe for mushy peas -- yummy!

This is a fantastic recipe that is so quick and so simple and uses our reliable friends the frozen peas, which work really well here. Great with fish, meat, or even as a vegetarian dish with a big dollop of butter on top.


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 bunch spring onions, chopped
1 handful fresh mint, leaves picked
1 pound (500 grams) frozen peas
2 large knobs butter
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a pan and add the chopped onions, mint, and peas. Cover and leave for a few minutes to steam. Mash with a potato masher. You can do this with a food processor as well, just pulse it until smooth. Whether mashing or pulsing, when it's done add the butter and season very carefully, to taste.

I could type out Nigella's recipe for you. A few ingredients and quick whiz in the food processor et voila... mushy peas!!

Well thank you everyone - I never expected such a lot of good replies about Mushy Peas (and yes Ray I am weird and Northern - but you're wrong mushy peas are delicious!).

I didn't realise the CCA British foods woman still shipped stuff - however, she is out of stock The South African place don't have any on their website - but I'll go and have a look anyway.

Thanks again everyone!

......Thats not Mushy Pea's ....

You southern puffs have never lived until you've stood on a street corner in Halifax or Oldham eating chips,fish and mushy pea's ....or even better babby's yed pea's and gravy ....

I have found them for sale at Meijer's supermarkets ....my American wife usually leaves the room when I open the can ......
