  1. Soak the peas overnight in cold water.
  2. In the morning rinse well, then place into a saucepan.
  3. Just cover with cold water, and bring to the boil.
  4. Skim well, then simmer until they are soft and just falling apart, and the liquid has mostly evaporated.
  5. Mix well with a wooden spoon, seasoning with salt, pepper and adding the butter.
  6. The end result should be, nice and soft, with a buttery edge.
  7. Cover and keep warm.
