Toro CREAMED PEAS (Grønn ertestuing) Green Pea Stew

Toro Norwegian CREAMED PEAS (Grønn ertestuing)
2 cups (5 dl) dried peas1 quart (liter) water3 T. butter3 T. flour2 tsp. salt or more1 tsp. sugar

It is amazing how inexpensive, traditional, good food can be. Creamed peas served with meatballs or  lutefisk.   The erte (pea) stuing (stew) is very similar to the English Mushy Peas.

Rinse the peas well and pick out any foreign objects. By this I mean rocks or stones.  Place in water to soak overnight in a cool place. Let them simmer in the water they were soaked in, approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Mix the flour with the butter and add to the peas and let simmer about 10 minutes longer. Add salt and sugar to taste. If you wish you may add a peeled or diced carrot to the peas during the last 1/2 hour of cooking. No sugar is needed if you add a carrot.
