| || ||Black-eyed Peas|
BLACK-EYED PEAS (cowpeas, crowder peas, black-eyed beans) have long been popular in the South, thanks to their sweet and mild, rather earthy, flavor. They are small and greenish-beige (beige when dried) with a brown circular "eye" at their inner curve. BLACK-EYED PEAS are traditionally partnered with rice and with greens and are the featured component in hoppin' John. The BLACK-EYED PEA originated in Western or Central Africa, and was introduced to the United States through the African slave trade. Fresh BLACK-EYED PEAS take slightly less time to cook than their dried counterparts, but still require a good hour. Cook in a rich vegetable stock seasoned with cipotle chili, and a little thyme, garlic and allspice. Serve with or without the broth over braised greens.
