Purple Hull Peas

Finally, enough purple hull peas to cook!
Purple hull peas are Byron's favorite. He never ceases to expound the virtues of the purple hull pea.
A little turkey sausage, chopped onion, minced garlic and green onions sauteed in olive oil until tender. Then add purple hull peas and some water. Then cook...simmer...simmer....simmer...until.
It's done. Serve over a spoonful of short grain brown rice.
And then seconds...more seconds...more please...more...no more!
Mmmmmm....the best Mom!
Sure there's not enough for thirds? No....I promise I'll plant a lot more next time.
That was good Mom.

I love any kind of beans cooked and those sound great. I have never seen any before. Oh and your girls are so beautiful.

Those look delicious. It makes me think of Maw Tera. I love to see the pictures of Talia, Selest, and Tera. They love their mama's and daddy's cookin'. I learned this summer that no one... and I mean no one, can compare! ha!

I sent you a text the other day. Not sure if you get texts, but I wanted to thank you for the seeds. I was super excited to receive those in the mail. I assure you that I will be planting them come spring.

Thanks for thinking of me.

Love your sis... Monique.

Kristi, if you receive a comment that says Miss Riya is beautiful... don't delete it! I tried calling you to let you know what was up, but you must have been busy.

Yummy! Can you use black eye peas if you don't know what a purple hull pea is??

P.S. Miss Riya is beautiful and cooks the best GUMBO and wants to send ME the cookbook. :D

The purple hull peas look super yummy, but I have never heard of them. Must be a southern thing. :)

Um,nice try, Tiffany, but I know that Miss Riya is beautiful and cooks the most wonderful Gumbo and is thinking of the number 2 so she can send ME the cookbook.

Blessings to ya,
