Purple Hull Peas

Purple Hull Peas are a staple of the traditional southern diet. Simple to grow and cook, they are full of fiber and protein so it is easy to understand why they have stood the test of time.

We don’t believe in overcooking vegetables as it diminishes the value of the nutrients. If the peas (any type) are dried it would be best to cook for a long time, but we only cook the fresh peas for a half an hour.

During the summer months when peas are fresh from the field, it can be a quick addition to dinner. We eat them as often as possible! Cooked with or without meat they are always delicious.
