Pease Porridge

Peas porridge hot,
Peas porridge cold,
Peas porridge in the pot
Nine days old.
Some like it hot,
Some like it cold,
Some like it in the pot
Nine days old.

Midi: Pease Porridge Hot

2 cups dried green split peas, rinsed
2 1/2 cups water, more or less
salt and pepper and butter

Put the peas and water in a kettle with a lid. Add a little salt, and bring to a boil, stirring. Simmer, covered, until peas turn soft and mushy, about 1 hour. More water may be added if needed. Stir often. When a nice consistency is reached, add butter, salt, and pepper to taste. YUM!
