“The Research Triangle Park area of NC brings together old-time cultures with new influences. As the evenings cool, pots of fieldpeas become satisfying. Serve as a side to BBQ chicken with mustard greens & cornbread for a deeply satisfying supper! Dried fieldpeas (and Goya Adobo seasoning)are readily available at Walmart (62cents/lb!)- they are about 1/3 the size of black eyed peas & brown. Their texture is firmer than a brown lentil when cooked & they make a lovely gravy as they simmer! Time doen't include soaking - make more & freeze!”
