                                          How to Cook Dry Black-eyed Peas
                                          Special tip for preparing dry peas:
                                          SOAKING PEAS
                                          OVERNIGHT METHOD: Add 1¾ qt cold water to every 1 lb of dry peas. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Discard the water. Proceed with recipe.
                                          QUICK-SOAK METHOD: Boil 1¾ qt of water for each 1 lb of dry peas. Add peas and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to soak for 1hour. Discard the water. Proceed with recipe.
                                          COOKING PEAS
                                          Once the peas have been soaked, add 1¾ qt water for every lb of dry peas. Boil gently with lid tilted until tender, about 2 hours. Use hot peas immediately.
                                          Critical Control Point: Hold for hot service at 140 °F or higher.
                                          OR
                                          Chill for later use.
                                          Critical Control Point: Cool to 70 °F within 2 hours and to 40 °F or lower within 4 hours.
                                          1 lb dry black-eyed peas = about 2¼ cups dry or 4½ cups cooked peas.
