I tried a number of new peas and beans this year, including something called Crowder Peas. It turns out that is just another name for what my family calls black-eyed peas. And they’ve been a delight. We’ve not yet eaten a one, although we’ve started picking the dried pods and shelling them for storage. But every visitor notices them right off because of their unusual appearance. So I’ve got to recommend them, as otherwise, how would you know what black-eyed peas look like before they reach the supermarket.
