~^Angel's^~ Crowder Peas (from canned)
Why I Love This Recipe
I was never a fan of sweet peas, the hulls that came with black-eyed peas, or pinto beans much as a kid. However, every year Mom and Dad would make a garden, and the Crowder Peas were the only thing in a pod I didn't mind hulling. To me, their flavor is a cross between the black-eyed pea and pinto bean, but with the shape similar to a garbanzo bean. Now, I don't plant my own garden, but can occasionally still find either a frozen version or a canned version of these delicious legumes!

Ingredients You'll Need
2 cans Crowder Peas (I usually find Bushes brand), UNdrained + (appx) 1/2 can water to cover
2 tsp Dry Chopped Onion Flakes
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Seasoned Salt
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
*Mild Banana Pepper Rings- for serving suggestion
*Jalapeno Slices- for serving suggestion
1) In a medium sauce pan, over medium-high heat, combine all ingredients and enough water to cover the peas. Bring to a boil.
2) Turn down heat and allow to simmer 7-10 minutes.
(A longer simmer will help soak in the flavors. If you are using frozen peas, be sure to simmer longer, until your peas are firm- not "crunchy", but not to overcook them to "mushy".)
Serve with some Mild Banana Pepper Rings and/or a splash of their juice! Or for a little heat- a few Jalapeno Slices! Yum!
