    Heat half the butter in a frying pan on a medium heat and fry the lardons until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

  • STEP 3

    Add the garlic and all the thyme, and cook for about 30 secs, stirring constantly. Stir in the gungo peas, pepper sauce and ham hock. Heat until warmed through, then stir in the lardons. Remove the thyme sprig, season to taste and serve immediately.

RECIPE TIPS
GUNGO PEAS

You can buy these large, pale brown peas either dried or canned (also known as pigeon peas) – dried will need to be soaked and cooked before using. They are available in many supermarkets, but if you can’t find them, use red kidney beans instead.
