Black Eyed Peas, Dried

Store dry black-eyed peas in a cool, dry place off the floor. High temperatures cause hardening of the black-eyed peas; high humidity may cause mold.

Uses and Tips
Cooked black-eyed peas may be used cold in salads, in soups, casseroles, or stews, in chili, or as a vegetable side dish. They are also excellent mixed with rice.


    • Sort peas to remove foreign matter, such as small stones, and rinse in cold water.

    • Soaking the beans not only makes the beans cook faster, but by discarding the soaking water gas-forming properties of the beans are lessened

Directions for Soaking Black-eyed Peas

    Overnight method: Add dry beans to cold water. Cover. Let stand in refrigerator overnight. Drain and discard soaking water. Replace water and cook immediately after soaking period. Longer periods of soaking are not recommended.

    Quick soak method: Pour dry beans into boiling water and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to stand for 1 hour. Discard soaking water and proceed with cooking.
