Produce Spolight: Black-Eyed Peas

Submitted by mommyo on Thu, 08/25/2022 - 3:21pm

 I am delighted to announce black-eyed peas are in season! I am absolutely enamored with them (so much so that I wrote a book about them)! There's so much that I would like to share but I will provide the streamlined version.  Black-eyed peas, also referred to as cowpeas, are technically a bean. However, like their name suggests, they share some similarity with peas. The main one being, they are both legumes- which are edible seeds grown inside of a pod (examples include beans, peas, lentils, and edamame).
