Hello, my name is Pete and I like pease pudding.
Pete’s Puddin’ is the first ever range of pease pudding offering a variety of flavoured puds!
We call it proper pease because we think its proper tasty,
Also, as a bairn I, referred to all of my Mam’s home cooking as ‘proper’, favourites included her proper spaghetti bolognese, proper marshmallow rice crispy cake and of course her ‘proper pease pudding’.
The idea to offer a range of flavoured pease puds was born from a feeling that one of our regions fondest dishes was slightly under represented at the local produce markets.
And rather than offer a similar product to the pease that is currently available, I felt that there was room to offer something a little different.
If our company has a goal, it is to add something of value to our amazing regional cultural landscape and maybe make it even just a tiny bit richer in the process!
What is Pease Pudding?
To the uninitiated, pease pudding is a delicious savoury food, low in fat, full of vitamins and a great source of protein and carbs.
It is made from boiling Yellow split pease down into a paste which can then be enjoyed hot or cold.
Traditionally the peas would be wrapped in a muslin cloth a popped in a pot of water with veg and perhaps a ham joint!
Particularly popular in the North East of England, if you are looking for a real traditional taste of the region, look no further than pease pud!
This is our original recipe pud. Closest of the range to the traditional recipe of pease pudding, this is a combination of my Mam’s recipe but with a few additions that we feel give our pud a unique and delicious taste.
This is our attempt at making the most Geordie food in the known universe! Combining pease pudding and Newcastle Brown Ale might seem to some as an odd prospect but give it a go, we think you’ll be surprised. It really doesn’t get much more Geordie than this!
Black and Mite
Packed with vitmains, this is probably the most controversial of the range, Black and Mite is our Marmite flavoured pud!
As they say you either love it or you hate it, but either way, theres only one way to find out if you like it in your pease pud, be brave and give it a go!
This pud is blended with extra mature cheddar and sweet pickle to make a really delicious treat. It is a bit like a mini ploughmans lunch in a pot. All of our puds are delicious hot or cold but when heated the cheese in this pud makes for a lovely soft moreish comfort food. Cheesy Peasey Lemon Squeezy!
