We're having an abundance of fresh black Eye Peas from our garden and I've been shelling and freezing them. I really want to can them, but have never canned Black eye Peas before. Does anyone have any recipes I can try? I have a pressure cooker.
Peas - Blackeye, Crowder & Field (Ball Blue Book)
2 to 2 1/4 pounds pea pods per quart
Hot Pack: Wash peas, drain. Shell peas. Wash again. Cover peas with water in a large saucepot; boil 3 minutes. Ladle hot peas and liquid into hot jars, leaving 1-inch headspace. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt to each pint jar. 1 teaspoon salt to each quart jar, if desired. Remove air bubbles. Adjust two-piece caps. Process pints 40 minutes, quarts 50 minutes, at 10 pounds pressure in a steam-pressure canner.
When is the best time to plant black peas. I,ve been told to plant on dark night.
We just plant them whenever we get a chance. The hubby planted some this week.
Thanks Duomom! I canned a dozen pints and they look so pretty sitting on my pantry shelf. I can't wait to eat them this fall. Hubby says we can give some as Christmas gifts, I said maybe, if there's any left. :)
rinse very fresh black-eyed peas, then put in plain unsalted water, bring to a boil, then simmer in a covered pan until soft (15 to 20 minutes). Drain and roughly mash with a fork if desired. At this point you can add flavorings--I added a bit of reduced chicken broth and some Tabasco sauce.
