Purple Hull Peas

(1/3) > >>

Ozark Tracker:
I planted about 2 acres of purple hull peas this year for a deer plot, by now the deer usually have them pretty well eaten up.  But this year there is an overload of acorns in these Ozark mountains, so now I have purple hull peas coming out my ears. I guess them deer pefer them acorns.

Besides just cooking them with a hunk of pork meat how else can these be fixed.

and also can these be frozen or do they need to be canned?

thanks for any input   ??? ???

Delmonico:
Are these like a sweet pea or they more like a blackeyed pea or such?

Ozark Tracker:
The are the black eyed pea variety,  I'm hoping they have the chance to mature and dry in the hull to the point I can store some that way,
 The weather has been so warm they may.    Not too wet

I love purple hull peas!  I have not had them anyway except with cooked with a hunk of country ham but you could use them in bean relishes, pea soups etc.


I get mine frozen but you could can them too.  Freezing would probably be easier.
