with food, there’s always something new

November is

National Turkey month, of course.

Did you know the second week of November is National Split Pea Week?

Dried split peas provide folate, fiber, iron, and protein, as well as being low in fat. Unlike cooking other legumes, it’s not necesarry to soak them before cooking with them. It’s easy to make a hot and hearty meal in a hurryUNL Extension in Lancaster County.

And wouldn’t you know it, there’s a U.S.A. Dry Pea and Lentil Council.
