A mini "Which Team" pole:

Which is your favorite to eat? Do you prefer Southern peas or green peas?

What is your preferred method of eating them? Cooked (how?), or raw?

Which do you grow?

Define "garden peas" please. Maybe it's a southern term? My peas are all green. I eat them raw as snacks while I tend the garden, and also cooked. Some are frozen for winter.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

I prefer Southern field green cow peas cooked with a little bacon or ham
Sometimes mixed with okra,corn,butterbeans/limas,and tomatos.Gotta have jalapeno corn bread with both.
We call garden green peas English peas here
I only like them in soups,stews or pot pies.

Charlie- we love southern peas cooked just like you described. We've also taken to eating them raw as well.

Hmmmm.....I don't even know what "southern peas" are, so I guess my answer is green. *Blush*
I grow shelling peas (which some call "english" peas) and snow peas, which probably don't fall in to either of your categories. What can you expect from a northerner, and a city girl at that???? Hilarious!

Moms- I think both of your would fall into the "green" category! We also enjoy Green Peas- sugar snaps and snow peas, both of which usually never make it to the house because they get grazed on straight from the garden.

I don't know southern Peas but love sugar snaps for growing. This year I planted several varieties: Sugar Snap Sprint, Sugar Daddy, Sugar Snappy, Super Sugar Snap, Sugar Star, and Cascadia. Of all these varieties the Cascadia outshone the others by miles. All the others produced far less and have dried up. The Cascadias are still huge mounds of green and have not stopped producing even during this horrendous heat wave (but they have obviously slowed down a lot!). My husband is now letting them set seeds for next year. I had intended to have them over and done with at this point to give the row of soy beans room! He likes his sugar snaps cooked but I prefer them raw.

Green peas here ,fresh in the garden , very few make it to the house. The type used in stir- fry, make it into salads and stir-fry.
My kids all grown now still do not like cooked peas, they always ate them raw in the garden.
They call cooked green peas ''mushy peas''
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

I didn't know what "southern peas" were either, or at least I only thought of them as being dried -- no idea why it never occurred to me that they would also be eaten fresh! Since I've never had them, I guess I have to say green peas are my favorite, although that doesn't seem quite fair. I can say with authority that I don't like the 'hot boiled peanuts" that southerners seem to favor! Whistling

If you ever get the chance to eat Purple Hull Peas, you should! They might even be in your grocery's freezer section.

Bleh with the boiled peanuts. Thumbs down

Trish, I will look for them -- but you must remember I am in the boonies of the north, if I can't find them here I'll look when I go somewhere more "civilized" ! Hilarious!

(are the peas purple? or the pods?)

The pods are purple, the peas are whitish.

Trust me, I understand boonies. Big Grin

SOUTHERN PEAS = what some people generally refer to as "beans". Purple Hull peas, Cream Peas, Black-Eyed Peas, Zipper Cream Peas, Kidney Beans, Lady Cream Peas, Rattlers,

GREEN PEAS = English Peas, those little green, china balls that they make split pea soup out of, plus sugar snap peas, and snow peas.

I tip my hat to you.
