Split peas "à la française"


Split peas "à la française"
To cook fresh peas à la française (French style), they are first blanched in boiling water, then combined with fried lardons and onion. This idea can also be used with split peas, but they need cooking for much longer.

Passion fruit jellies
Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
