Mushy peas are an absolute classic of northern English cuisine. They are incredibly simple to make and they go amazingly well with fish and chips, pies, etc. I am annoyed and frustrated that people think you can just take frozen peas, boil them up, mash them and call them 'mushy peas'. No, no, no! At best that is pea puree (and a very poor one at that). There is no mashing, squishing, crushing or any other culinary technique involved in this. Making proper British mushy peas is amazingly simple, and in this video recipe I show you how to make proper British mushy peas. Accept no substitute, and enjoy!
