Zipper Peas  will compliment any protein. Serving it as a bowl for lunch with a plate of sliced tomatoes, avocado, onions and cornbread is also an option. Since I love flavor combinations, I add chow-chow or Tomato Pear Relish to my peas.

Although an antique wooden box is antiquated when you compare the advantages that a computer offers. What a box lacks in speed and efficiency it more than delivers in the form of memories and personal touch. I smile as I sift through the handwritten recipes from Grandmothers and Mothers. My family and friends are a group of fabulous cooks.

Because they generously share their recipes it benefits many. Share my zipper peas with someone soon. Cook this dish for dinner or  put in freezer to be used later and shared with your loved ones.

Also in my “newest wooden box”, I found a ton of Southern favorites. I discovered the box in my favorite city, New Orleans. You may read all about my adventure in the Garden District,  along with my recipe for “Southern Comfort and Oh That Chocolate Pie“. This pie is dangerously delicious if you love chocolate.

Without a doubt, your “little wooden recipe box” or whizz-bang-techno-recipe iPad or computer device  should have Southern Zipper Peas. Healthy,  easy to make, and inexpensive are a few reasons to try this dish. You may find zipper Peas for sale locally fresh or in your grocer’s freezer.
