Recipe Ingredients for Black Eyed Peas

2 cup Organics Black Eyed Peas
4 clove Garlic
2 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Spices Oregano Leaves
1/4 tsp Cayenne

Recipe Directions for Black Eyed Peas

  1. Rinse peas in a warm water bath being careful to avoid pebbles, sand or dirt. Use a steamer, colander or sieve to clean, then discard dirty water.

  2. Cover clean peas with fresh cool water in a pot (about 2 parts water for every part peas).

  3. Add salt, spices and garlic.

  4. Simmer gently with lid ajar for about an hour and then test for done. You may have to add some water in cooking but never more than level with peas. Peas can cook in as little as 45 minutes or as long as 2 hours, depends on freshness.

  5. I never soak beans, nor do most Mexican cooks I know. It preserves more flavor. Tough beans are old beans!
