Shelled Peas – More “Texas” Than The State Fair

October 6th, 2011

Purple hull peas from Morrison Organic Farm in Cleburne, TX

Ahhhh.  October is wonderful for so many reasons.  Cooler weather, the Texas State Fair, the Texas Rangers in the playoffs….and fresh, organic Texas shelled peas!  Nothing makes us happier during the fall harvest than getting fresh, organic creamy peas from our local farmers.

These purple hull peas from Morrison Organic Farm in Cleburne, TX are not your typical green peas that your parents force-fed you as a toddler.  These peas beat up those sad, sorry little green peas in the frozen food section.  These cousins to the black-eyed pea are creamy like buttah.
