Black eyed Peas



Log in to see fewer ads
My ex-wife, from Oklahoma, used to cook dried and fresh (still in the pod) black-eyed peas from our garden together in the same pot. With bacon, I think.
It was good. I don't remember how to cook it.
Anyone else ever heard of such a thing?
Ah, the memories!

I fear I've given the wrong idea here. I've ate tons of black eye peas in my life. I grew up in Bakersfield. True it's in California, but you'd be hard put to find a lot of yankees there. At least back in the day.
Anyway, we had dried beps year round but only cooked in the fresh pods when they were available, before they got really ripe. The por would be kinda green and brown when ready. You cook up the dry ones just like you say but add the fresh pods when the dry ones started getting soft.
The fresh ones might not be available where you are.

I grew up with black eyed peas and still love them to this day although it's rare to find the fresh ones in pods where I live. Growing up, I did my share of shelling peas. We ate the fresh shelled ones (peas and small pods) with whole okra; and always fresh frozen or dried on New Years Day.

Boy you guys are making me hungry. My granny an my loving mother both used Jowl Bacon (made from the jaws of a hog) an it was smoked in the smokehouse. Thats where much of the incredible flavor came from. Black-eyed peas were crazy good with a little cornbread an onion.......Redworm..........

Tradition around the place is to smoke a pork butt over pecan w/a bit of fresh sage & rosemary limbs thrown in during the last hour or so of smoking for Christmas, saving the bone w/a lot of meat attached for the 'hoppin' johns' come the New Years. Fresh black eyes peas are combined w/some dried ones that have been soaked in beer overnight and they are served over rice when the pot is done. It eats well for several days afterwards, but is best the day after they are made, IMHO. Texas 'sweet' cornbread makes for a perfect compliment I happen to like a bit of vinegar & butter on my 'hoppin' johns', yer taste may vary

Are the fresh ones shucked, or left in the (young) pods? My ex wife to make this with the fresh young pods cut into pieces and added to the the dried. She's from Oklahoma, where the dish was invented.
