Among the typically spring legumes, versatile and rich in properties, there are peas, seeds of the homonymous plant.
Let's see, thanks to Dr. Francesca Evangelisti, nutrition biologist, what are the specific properties of peas and how to use them in the kitchen in a healthy way, enhancing their flavor and characteristics.
In some way, peas are also part of the herbal remedies: the fibers contained stimulate intestinal motility and are, therefore, a good remedy for constipation.
Peas have diuretic, tonic and energetic properties, albeit rather mild.
By preparing a broth with the pods, you get a fairly tasty liquid rich in mineral salts: in this regard, peas also boast remineralizing properties.

Masseria Antonio Esposito Ferraioli, is managed by a Temporary Association of Purpose composed of: Third Sector Consortium, Cooperative Man and Wood, Cooperative Giancarlo Siani, CGIL Naples and Sott'e'ncoppa Association.The territory of North Naples has seen archaic forms of Camorra organization move to illegal systems organized in an entrepreneurial way, which unfortunately still rage and control various economic sectors (drug trafficking, financing and conducting public contracts, illegal waste disposal). From Masseria Antonio Esposito Ferraioli we wanted to propose and implement a model of civil society that believes in the culture of legality and carries out its activities on confiscated assets with the explicit intention of returning the stolen goods of the clans to citizens. In addition to agricultural activity, Masseria Ferraioli carries out an important educational activity especially in the field of legality education, hosts training meetings with schools, has hosted the engagement and training camps organized by Libera, dedicates over 10,000 square meters to the important activity of urban gardens involving over 100 citizens.
It starts with the cultivation of confiscated land to create not only quality but social agriculture, which places the person and the community of reference at the center. The activities are aimed at involving the community, for the socio-cultural change of the territory and to make confiscated assets and common symbols and resources of communities free from the Camorra more and more. On the confiscated property of Afragola, we sow, cultivate and harvest while the transformation takes place in small highly qualified laboratories.
