PRLog - Sep. 21, 2011 - Paul Saxon, who cultivates Yorkshire peas as part of the Swaythorpe Growers partnership of over 40 family farms, knows a thing or two about producing irresistibly tender garden peas. For one thing, he knows that they grow best in a maritime climate and that is just what they get on the softly sloping hills of the Yorkshire Wolds.

Many of the Swaythorpe Growers are second or third generation pea growers and know not only when and which conditions to plant in, but take great care to pick their crop at the exact moment that the harvest is sweetest and tenderest. Once the peas are removed from the pods, Swaythorpe‘s Pea Podders return waste pods to the field. After a quick wash and a brief blanch, the peas are flash frozen within 150 minutes of being picked, retaining the vitamins and freshness.
“Look what we found!” are not just proud to have found small British regional farmer Paul Saxon, but also to have created a recipe combining his beautiful produce with two ingredients which partner them so well. Everyone appreciates that mint and peas are a good match, but many will not be aware that the sweetness of apple brings out the flavour of peas, making it even more vibrant and lively. Try our thick, hearty soup (we are happy to send you a sample pouch) and see for yourself. If you are feeling adventurous, try it chilled as a really refreshing starter at dinner, or for lunch.
More and more shoppers want to know who bred or grew the food they are eating and it is not unusual to see the farmer on the front of the pack nowadays. But provenance proof has been at the heart of “Look what we found!“ ready meals and soups since the very beginning. The farmer has always had top billing.
