Pink-eyed Purple Hull Peas

You can tell from the name that these baby's are colorful.

I was not a fan of black-eyed peas until I worked offshore with a Cajun. He cooked up a "mess" of peas with a lot of smoked pork hock, onion, and cajun spice. Ever since then I appreciate their unique flavor and texture. Another favorite I quickly learned to love is known affectionately as Redneck Caviar. It is a marianated mixture of cooked peas (canned are OK), Italian salad dressing, chopped onion, celery & peppers. It is best enjoyed with Fritos. Yum!
