Two great recipes of how to cook your Black Peas 

Traditional Lancashire Bonfire Black Peas

To serve 6-8 people (the peas are meant to be eaten as a small snack/nibble, rather than a main course) use about:

1 cup / 150g black peas – soaked in water for 24 hours

After soaking and draining the black peas, cover them in plenty of salted water in a large pot, and bring to a raging boil. Then turn down the heat to a rolling boil, cover the pan, and boil for about an hour or slightly longer. You want the peas to be very well-cooked, with the skins coming off. Once the peas are cooked and soft, drain them.

  1. Put 250ml / 1 cup of cold, fresh water in a pan, add the peas and bring the water to the boil. Turn the heat down to a high simmer.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of vegetable stock to the peas and also 2 teaspoons of cider vinegar, as well as some salt and freshly
    ground black pepper
    .
  3. Allow the peas to stay on a high simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. The peas are ready when there is a small amount of grey-black liquid in the pan, just enough for the peas to be moist but not lots of liquid left.
  4. Serve the peas individually in small pots, and sprinkle with salt and vinegar for the traditional way of eating them.
