Since last Sunday was Mothering Sunday, this coming Sunday, the 5th in Lent, must be carlin Sunday.
Growing up, my mother always boiled a piece of ham, and in the stock she boiled carlins (or badger peas) and we ate them as a starter before our Sunday dinner, I loved them with butter and pepper and a splash of vinegar.
I still keep this strange festival, and was wondering if anyone else still eats carlins. You can't find them in the shops these days, but I bought mine from an online store specialising in pulses and legumes.
