Yellow Split Peas?

Bought a bag last night out of curiosity.
I've never had or have seen the yellows before.
Can they be cooked with the green? They only had 1 bag left.

Thank you

Munky.

You can make a pea soup with them. You should be able to mix them no problem.

Thanks Andy!

With all this talk about ham and split pea soup I went out on a quest to find a ham.

That's going to be an interesting pot of soup.

I've never used yellow either Munky. Found this thread at Chowhound that was interesting.

I use yellow split peas for my restaurant recipe. They cook through quick on simmer, and break down and disolve, leaving a nice thick creamy consistency. Taste good also.

Would you say they cook about the same as the greens?
Are they sweet tasting?

I was going to put them in a crock pot tonight and let it cook on low. I like thick but not thick as standing a spoon in the bowl.. Do you add a a garni bag to the pot. or just everyday spices?

Thanks
Munky.

They can thicken up very nicely if you simmer and reduce them enough. I would say that they are a bit milder than the green peas. But, still very close in flavor.
