    Just bought some locally grown purple hull peas from a vendor. They are sooooo good. Am cooking a big pan full for supper tonight and have invited the family. I'm making the Squash Casserole recipe that appeared on this board recently too, and am serving a big plate of ripe tomatoes. I told someone about my purchase and they replied that they thought purple hull peas were cow feed. Obviously they didn't grow up around here.

    I have heard those called Fava beans..they are good but make sure you shell them...the outsides are woody and don't taste good to eat..add in some bacon, a little onion and mushrooms and they are fantastic!! crafty_linda_b

    Love them loads. Got some at farmer's market this weekend.
    My dh's grandfather was that way about corn...wouldn't touch it. It was food for farm animals when he grew up!

    Sounds great - I would like to try them but haven't seen them in the seed catalogs up here in MA. Hey, my grandmother was shocked to see that Americans ate corn! They gave it to the cows.

    All we've got so far is asparagus, spinach, peas and lettuce. And the lettuce doesn't look anything like my head shot. My tomatoes are under 24" and the squash and beans are barely past the seed leaves. Artichokes and potatoes healthy, beets look sick, eggplants got bugs, onions and shallots hopeful, no sign of parsnips, Windsor beans thriving. We pruned the grapes too severely and they look like we'll have a bowlful, no jam.
    At least - after they ate five of my ten pepper plants 18" to the ground, left stumps - the new fencing is keeping out the woodchucks so far.
    Every year is different. We only have 25x50 feet .

    I thought fava beans are the big brown flatish ones, or maybe those are the mature ones. Are they the same? I love discovering different foods. This does sound like a good recipe. I have a bag of fava beans someplace.

    Are these purple hull PEAS? or BEANS? There are cranberry beans which have speckled hulls. And purpleish yard-long beans.
    When you make the jelly do you make it with the hulls also, same way you would make grape jelly including a lot of twigs and unripe grapes?

    One of my happiest childhood memories is sitting outside and shelling peas with my grampa - I still get that happy feeling when I'm shelling. Purple hull is definitely my favorite from the garden!!
