    You need a double portion of Uncle Aardvark's Gradely Auld Lanky No1 Fart Power Mushy Peas Jim. (y)(y)
    Directions. Eat peas quickly. Now consume three pints of Joseph Holt's finest mild beer.........Have a tab, and watch Top Gear :rofl:....now, remove all your clothes, and stand in a wide open space, preferably with a fire engine in attendance. The resulting explosion will measure about 6.7 on the Rectum Scale........(y)(y)

    When we lived in Jo'burg there was chippy owned by a Scottish couple, .. called the Fishhook, along with Scotch pies, black pudding, Cod and haggis suppers, they served mushy peas .. they were queued out on a Saturday night .. they also posted the footie results on a blackboard .. Celtic and Rangers posters decorated the walls.

    This was in the 70s, pre TV days in RSA, when news from home was only available by buying a British newspaper, that was not only several days old, but cost a fortune..

    We only use tinned ones and found some of the value brands are far better than known branded ones
    For what the cheap ones cost if there are crap we just bin them and don't buy that brand again

    I used to visit friends who live in Nottinham. . ... they used to take me to a Pea Shop. They just sold you cartons of mushy peas with a plastic spoon... yummy... On top of the counter was salt, a bowl of vinegar and a bowl of mint sauce with ladels... You just helped yourself. My mouth is watering now just thinking about it. :)

    You could always use them to make mushy pea curry sauce (Slimming World Recipe).

    Really easy recipe: 2 tins mushy peas, tin of tomatoes, tin of baked beans, curry powder to taste and 5 pickled onions - just blitz them all together and then heat.

    Just use the sauce to make whatever curry you want - chicken, turkey, beef, prawn etc.

    Apparently tastes like chip shop curry sauce but wouldn't know as have never bought it.
