Yupik Organic Yellow Split Peas are dried, split (from whole) vegetables. Like pasta, split peas can be cooked in a pot of boiling, salted water. Yellow split peas cook for approximately 30-45 minutes, or until tender. Hearty yellow split peas are mildly sweet in flavor, while tender in texture. Yellow split peas can be used in soups, stews, salads, and side dishes; they also mash or blend easily to add texture, thickness, and depth to recipes.
