Bee and Dennis - shelling them was fun. I love alitcte work like that. So relaxing.@Monet - how did your grandmother make black-eyed peas? Now I'm curious how everyone else does it. This method seemed too easy, but it's completely fabulous. I bet it would work just as well with the dried ones, although of course it would cook longer.@Lynne - you flatter me. :)
