marrowfat peas with bacon


Sprinkle a little salt, pepper and paprika powder onto the bacon before gently frying it (without allowing it to become crisp). Meanwhile, place the marrowfat peas into a colander and rinse under running water. Stir the marrowfat peas into the bacon and cook for a further few minutes, stirring thoroughly. Serve with boiled potatoes and Dutch apple sauce.
