  • 700 g ( lb) young fresh peas in the pod
  • 1 tablespoon goose fat</


Shell the peas and sauter very gently in the fat with the pork and ham diced small, and the little onions, for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with the flour and add cold water little by little until you have a smooth, slightly thickened sauce. You will need just to cover the peas. Add the shredded lettuce heart and a lump of sugar and check for seasoning – watch the salt because of the pork and ham
