Capucijners by Coroos

Capucijners are marrowfat peas. When picked they look like regular green peas but turn grey brown when cooked. The story goes that they received their name from an order of monks called capucines because their grey colour reminded people of the robes these monks wore.  When dried these beans have great keeping capabilities so they became a staple for the long ocean trips of the seafaring Dutch.Their texture is starchier than what you would expect from either beans or peas. They are still served with bacon, potatoes, sausage or meatballs and pickles like they have been for centuries as what was called “The Captain’s Dinner”.   However, they can also be added to salads or served with molasses and bacon. 796 ml tin

You can pre-order for pick-up or drop-off in our delivery areas OR make arrangements with us to have your order shipped. We strive to keep the prices in our online store current but as a small retailer it is impossible for us to be 100% accurate for the 1000+ products we list. Products with variable sizes like meat and cheese products will reflect approximate prices. 

Therefore, as you shop your “total order” will be an APPROXIMATE total. After you submit your order, we will communicate with you about shipping costs and any pertinent stock or price updates. Once you have said you wish to proceed we will send you an order summary. You will then be able to pay by eTransfer or call us with a credit card payment.
