Field Peas???

I had never seen field peas until last year. They look like black eyed peas but are not. I can only find them frozen and only at a few stores here in Los Angeles. I think they are more popular in other parts of the country??? I really like them but I need more recipes for them.

I cooked them according to the package directions, basically simmering in water for 40 minutes. Then I drained them and seasoned them with olive oil, salt and lemon pepper. That is probably not a typical way to season them.

  1. How funny! I guess they're a southern thing because they are abundant here. I've never seen them frozen, only in cans, right next to the blackeyes. I think they taste similar, but maybe just a little firmer.
