English pea recipe.
Take pesoun and seþ hem fast, and couere hem, til þei berst; þenne take hem vp and cole hem thurgh a cloth. Take oynouns and mynce hem, and seeþ hem in the same sewe, and oile þerwith; cast þerto sugar, salt and safroun, and seeþ hem wel þerafter, and serue hem forth. Forme of Cury
I used frozen small sweet peas rather than dried peas as they would have. This cut out the need to cook them until bursting. I cooked peas and finely chopped onions and cooked them in a small amount of water that had saffron, sugar, olive oil, and salt.
