WHAT ARE CROWDER PEAS?
Field peas, crowder peas, blackeye peas are all part of a larger species of beans commonly called “cowpeas” or “Southern peas.” They are commonly grown in the South because they adapt well to our heat-tolerant, and drought-resistant area.
Their flavor and texture are similar to blackeye peas. With a rich and hearty flavor, it creates a dark pot liquor when cooked. Crowder peas are delicious when cooked with smoked pork, onions, and garlic sauteed in butter. I love one pot meals!!!!
