1/1 Photo of Black-Eyed Peas Like Maw Maw's
Good ole Southern Cooking at it's best. I looked forward to these every summer when the fresh black eyed peas were plentiful. Maw Maw would get them by the bushel, we'd sit out back under the big old oaks in the afternoon, enjoy the breeze & shell peas. Once she cooked them up, you knew it was worth all the effort. Add some cornbread & sliced home grown tomatoes and you didn't need anything else. Fresh Frozen Black Eyed Peas come close. They taste much fresher than dried peas, and taste like summer even in the winter.
