From Time/Life's Foods of the World - The Cooking of the British Isles, 1969:
 
Pease Pudding
Puréed Peas
 
To serve 6 to 8:
 
2 cups dry, green split peas (1 pound)
2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon pepper
 
Wash the split peas under cold running water and continue to wash until the draining water runs clear. Pick over the peas and discard any discoloured ones.
 
In a heavy 3- to 4-quart saucepan, bring the 2 cups of water to a boil and drop in the peas slowly so that the water continues to boil. Reduce the heat and simmer partially covered for 1.5 hours, or until the peas can be easily mashed against the side of the pan with a spoon.
 
Drain the peas in a colander and purée them in a food mill or force them through a fine sieve set oer a large bowl. Return the peas to the pan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the purée is heated through. Stir in the salt, butter and pepper, and taste for seasoning. Serve at once from a heated vegetable dish. Pease pudding is the traditional accompaniment to boiled beef and carrots with dumplings.

Tas,
 
I have a fabulous suggestion for this split pea soup ... A bit of Español ... either a ham hock to create the stock and / or Spanish Style or a sprinkle of some gorgeous Proscuitto di Parma or Serrano Ham on top of the hot soup ... Some crusty warm oven bread ... a glass of wine ...
 
All my best,
Margi.

My favourite quote from that link;
   I can’t wax lyrical about how wonderfully delicious peasepudding is, because I’m afraid it’s not.
