Purple Hull Peas - Heart Healthy

Purple Hull Peas - Heart Healthy created by Chef RZ Fan

Purple Hull Peas are a lot like black eyed peas. We buy ours fresh and already shelled from a roadside farm stand in East Texas. We keep them in a cooler for our four hour trip back home. I put them in the fridge and make this ASAP usually the next day. I got this recipe from purplehull.com. but I use half the sugar and half the salt that the original had. We love the healthier version and hope you will too.

    Thanks for the basic guidelines for cooking purple hull peas! I knew they were like black eyed peas, but I wasn't quite sure how to prepare them. Anyhow, I did everything as directed, but after about 45 minutes the peas were quite soft! So, I took them off the heat and served them that way. I think if I would've left them the full 90 minutes they would've been mush! Anyhow, they were great, thanks again.
