How to Make Large Quantities of Peas

On Wednesday, I served a hot lunch at my children's school.  And I wanted to tell you a delicious way to make a large amount of peas.  It is really simple and quite tasty.

I have a little booklet called "Cooking For Crowds."  It has different large amount recipes and tips for serving wedding meals.  This is the directions for making large quantities of peas.

Put 8 qt. peas in kettle.  Just before cooking add 2 1/2 tablespoon salt and 1 teaspoon soda.  Pour 1 quart boiling water over peas.  Put peas on burners pre-heated on high.  Keep lids off kettles, stir gently and frequently.  Do not boil rapidly.  Boil approx. 2 min., time may vary for older peas.  Remove from heat, add 1/2-1 cup of butter.  Let sit 10 min.  Thawed peas take 30-40 minutes preparation time.  Sixty lbs. peas make 32 dishes with 6 cups each.
