A variation of pea soup is part of many cultures. In the 18th and 19th centuries, split pea soup played a prominent role in the British and Irish diets. Sailors loved eating peas, because they were inexpensive and stored easily in dried form. Both are still true today, which means peas remain a great staple food in modern times.
