Molly's Mushy Peas

Ooh, these are easily the most excellent when it comes to mushy peas for Fish and Chips. The peas used should be the dried marrowfat ones, the best ones we have found in the UK are Bachelors Bigga Marrowfat Peas but really most brands will make excellent mushy peas. They are a traditional northern English accompaniment to fish and chips and all over Northern England, they are commonly served as part of the popular snack of pie and peas (akin to the Australian pie floater, but with mushy peas instead of a thick pea soup) and are considered a part of traditional British cuisine. Mushy peas are also sometimes served in batter as a pea fritter. Marrowfat peas can also be bought in canned, the most popular brand is "Farrow's Giant Marrowfat Processed Peas", these can be used as a substitute for mushy peas.
