also included butter, and a little bit of water, and generous quantities of fresh mint.  I served them with boilet jersey royal new potatoes and chipolates.  Hannah only ate sausages, Sam had ketchup on his, John and I opted for HP fruity sauce. I wasn’t sure about this, because I don’t like peas, but it actually tasted nice, good texture, not too pea-ey, and I even had a little bit more.  I suspect this was partly the flavour and partly the slow gentle cooking process.  John and Sam seemed to like them, but John probably would have preferred peas by themselves, which I cook but would never dream of eating.  I will definitely add fresh mint to peas, if I happen to have any.
