    Default What do I do with 5+ pounds of black eyed peas?

    Good Morning!

    My neighbor gave me over 5 pounds of black eyed peas and snaps. They are frozen, so I'm not sure if they are precooked or not. I am not a bean person, so I have no idea what to do with them. I figure I can make some kind of ham and bean soup with some of them, but what other options do I have?

    TIA,
    Debbie

    Fire Black-Eyed Peas with Ginger

    Ingredients:

    * 2 cups dried black-eyed peas, rinsed, and soaked
    * 1 medium onion, finely chopped
    * 6 slices bacon, 1-inch dice
    * 1 teaspoon dry mustard
    * salt
    * freshly ground black pepper
    * 1/4 cup preserved ginger, chopped
    * 3/4 cup honey

    Preparation:
    Drain and rinse the beans; cover with fresh water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for about 45 minutes, or until tender. Add water to keep them from drying out, if necessary.

    Preheat oven to 325░. In a heavy skillet, saute onion and bacon over medium heat until onion is golden and bacon is crisp. Drain off fat and stir bacon and onion into beans. Add mustard and salt and pepper, to taste. Add ginger; combine well. Turn into a 2-quart baking dish; drizzle with the honey. Cover and bake 1 1/2 hours. Remove the cover the last 30 minutes to brown the top.
    Serves 4.
    ~Enjoy!~
