    I remember 21 years ago our poor cat was petrified under the car for 5 hours.We let her out when it was light and of course someone let off a load of fireworks not even a tin of tuna or her favourite biscuits could tempt her out.

    Apparently its only a tradition in lancashire.... cut and paste from tinternet.................
    We're a few weeks off from November the 5th and therefore Bonfire Night yet, but I was so excited to find dried black peas - aka maple peas - at the stall of the man who sells herbs, spices and dried foods in my local town. I had been on the hunt for them in order to have a go at making traditional Lancashire Bonfire Black Peas - a dish which is particular to the North West of England, and is eaten on Guy Fawkes Night, the 5th November.

    My memories of eating black peas involve me trying to stay warm on Bonfire Night, slathering them in vinegar then scooping them out of a small tub with my mittens on, while watching fireworks clash and burst in the sky. They conjure up wonderful childhood times

    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    My wife made a batch just recently so I took a little tub full to work to let my mate try some for the first time ... he nearly threw up after one mouthful !!
