Recipe #1: Striped Pease Pudding

Sorry, I haven't gotten to FB yet; I'm still recovering from the busiest two weeks I've had in a long time.  I went to bed at 7pm yesterday.

I actually promised a few people I would post my recipes for the Governor's table at Foods and Feasts (Jamestown), so here's one, with a little history.  I'll do more over the week.  I don't have pics yet, because I was a numpty and forgot my camera, but other people took pictures, and I'll post them whenever they arrive.

First, one of my traditional recipes, that isn't exactly from a book, but is an accumulation of family knowledge mixed with some historic research:

Striped Pease Pudding
Ingredients:
1/2 lb yellow dried split peas
1/2 lb green dried split peas
2 tsp butter
2 eggs
2 chicken or vegetable bouillon cubes
salt and pepper to taste
water
Crisco or lard to grease the pudding bowl
