There’s a certain sense of nostalgia associated with canned, Royal Star marrow fat peas. You can probably remember your nanna using them in her cooking. In fact, Royal Star Peas enjoy a legacy all of their own. Popular since the 1950s, this brand is synonymous with traditional cooking in Malta and has been the choice of family cooks and chefs throughout the country for generations. Today Royal Star Peas remain the number one brand for canned peas in Malta, and are especially popular for use in pasta sauces, rabbit dishes, pastizzi (pea pastry parcels) and timpana (baked pasta).
