Pease porrige hot, with a little bit of a difference. You can use either green or yellow split peas, and there is no need to pre-soak. This freezes and keeps well; it will get thicker in the fridge as the peas absorb more liquid. Add sauted onions or bacon or some grated cheddar on top when serving, if you like.
