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   ??? ???

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.
