    1. 1
      Soak fresh peas (used canned peas if you cannot find fresh) in cold water for about five minutes to soften.
    2. 2
      Using both hands, rub and gently squeeze the peas as they continue to soak.
    3. 3
      This process will gradually loosen the skins, which will float to the top.
    4. 4
      Skim and discard the skins.
    5. 5
      Drain and rinse the peas, add salt and hot pepper and cover with clean water.
    6. 6
      Boil until tender.
    7. 7
      Serve, along with the cooking water over oshifima or another stiff porridge.
    8. 8
      If you like, you can cook greens, such as spinach and perhaps serve some sliced bananas with peanuts to have a complete meal.

      Nice recipe! I used the 1/2tsp cayenne pepper and used frozen blacked eyed peas and added salt and let the peas simmer over low for a hour or so and kept checking the water level. For our personal taste I also added a slice of bacon for flavor and let it simmer in the pot with peas etc. til done. We liked the hint of the cayenne pepper. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
