They will keep for several years if stored properly in a dark, dry, cool area, however we recommend using them within two years of purchase. To prepare split peas rinse thoroughly and strain and add fresh water to cover by 2 inches. Boil, add your favorite vegetables and spices, reduce heat, cover and simmer for about one hour. Season with Eden Sea Salt or shoyu soy sauce toward the end of cooking. Split peas are not generally recommended for pressure cooking (due to their small size they tend to clog the vent).
