They are fairly tasteless compared to fresh or frozen peas, even with the serving suggestion of a knob of butter. I made them into a soup with chicken stock and some potato and chopped ham. I cooked them for a further hour or so in the stock and liquidized the mixture. With the addition of some mint, the soup was well received.
I guess dried peas are useful if you are living somewhere without a freezer, but I’ll be sticking to frozen peas in the future. Apparently, they got into the cupboard because they were brought for a children’s party game (of the remove sweets silently from a tin filled with dried peas/pasta variety).
