   or parsnip, marjoram, thyme, and salt.  Cook until
   peas and vegetables are tender, about 1 1/2 to 2
   hours.  Drain well.  Mash peas and vegetables in
   blender or press through a sieve.  In a small frying
   pan, saute the minced onion in butter until lightly
   browned; blend in flour and cook about 2 minutes.  Add
   to blended peas and vegetables.  Beat until fluffy and
   serve hot.
