Fresh Purple Hull Pea

This is one of the types of cowpeas available. Shuck the peas from the pod and braise for a stew or soup or simmer and add for a salad. Fresh purple hull peas have an earthy-nutty-slightly sweet flavor and creamy texture once cooked. The best substitutes for the fresh purple hull pea would be the Fresh Black-Eyed Pea and the Fresh Sea Island Red Pea.
