Green Split Peas
What makes our green split peas special? They’re sun-dried fresh. And the fresher the pea, the greener it is. Our peas are shipped to stores soon after harvesting, so they’re a vibrant green and cook quickly. TIP: If you want to keep your peas green, keep them in the dark. Continuous exposure to light will bleach the peas.
