Traditional Zipper Pea Recipe

Easy method of preparing nutritious Zipper Peas:

Fry two slices of bacon (or use ham, or if vegan, use seaweed or kelp).
Place peas in pot with bacon drippings ( or other oils or sugars such as molasses ) .
Season as desired, however, omit salting peas until the last minute. Putting salt in boiling water actually causes the peas to become “tough”. It is recommended to salt peas after they have been prepared.
Simmer until peas are the consistency your family enjoys.
Crumble bacon on the top of peas for texture and flavor. 

Zipper peas have a sweeter taste than Black-eyes and are delicious! Have you tried them before?
