    ^ After seeing that offering for dinner I thought Topper may have been incarcerated again.

    Fish, chips and mushy peas in a chippy on the Yorkshire coast last week (cod in the foreground and haddock at the back).

    I'm not usually a big fan, but this was very good with a little salt and plenty of vinegar. Certainly the best I've ever eaten.

    What’s the deal with mushy peas? Are they fresh green peas cooked to mush? Can’t say we have that in the US.

    OMG!
    You've never lived till you've eaten mushy peas Kitty.
    I'll bow down to Mendips superior knowledge on the subject.

    Mushy peas - Wikipedia

    The nearest thing I could probably compare them to would probably be an Indian daal...without the spices.

    With fish and chips and loads of vinegar, they're great.

    I know Mendip likes his garden peas every now and then , so I'll leave it to him to carry on with this one!

    PS. Mushy over garden every day of the week.

    ^^^, ^^

    To be honest, despite popular opinion my knowledge of mushy peas is very sparse. I'm from the west country and it was garden peas every time when I was growing up. Even now I would always have garden peas over mushy peas, unless I fancy a change. Birdseye frozen peas take some beating.

    An Aussie can probably correct me... but I seem to remember when I lived in WA you could get something called a 'floater' in a pie shop. It was a pie stuck on top of a bowl of mushy peas... floating on them. I have fond memories of those.

    You've gone right down in my estimation.

    When I was a kid and we didn't have enough money for a chip muffin or chips and gravy, we'd go round to the chippy and ask for scrapings (the batter from the fish and the little bits of chips that were scooped out of the fryer), which we were given for free. If we were in the mood for "gravy" on top we'd ask for pea wet too: the excess juice from the mushy peas as they were cooked.

    Topped with salt and vinegar it was a proper feast (for free) when you were 9 years old.

    Round our way -NE England- they were known simply as scraps. They were free but to my knowledge they were only given if asked for and when buying a a bag of chips, never alone and free. However a bag of chips back then was only 2.5 pence or less.
    fish & chips was the regular saturday lunch meal. Then it was very cheap, before all the cod had been fished out. There would be queues around the block at the more poular chippies.
    Chips & scraps were for week night evenings spending what little pocket money we were given when playing out in the streets with mates.

    Happy days!
