10 half-pints


  • 4 cup water

  • 8 ounce dried black-eyed peas (1 1/4 cups)*, rinsed

  • 12 ounce fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces (3 1/2 cups)

  • 1 ¾ cup cider vinegar

  • 1 ½ cup sugar

  • 1 ½ cup water

  • ¾ cup bottled lemon juice

  • ½ cup olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 ½ cup frozen shelled edamame (sweet soybeans)

  • 1 medium yellow sweet pepper, chopped (3/4 cup)

  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced (1/2 cup)

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  1. In a large pot bring 4 cups water and black-eyed peas to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 45 to 60 minutes or until tender. Drain; rinse with cold water and drain again.

  2. In the large pot bring 4 cups fresh water to boiling. Add green beans. Boil gently, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Drain; rinse with cold water and drain again.

  3. In the large pot stir together vinegar, sugar, 1 1/2 cups water, lemon juice, oil, and salt. Bring to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar. Stir in black-eyed peas, green beans, edamame, sweet pepper, onion, and garlic. Return to boiling; remove from heat.

  4. Ladle solids into ten hot sterilized half-pint or five pint canning jars (see tips, page xx), leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Add hot liquid to jars, maintaining 1/2-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles. Wipe jar rims and adjust lids and screw bands.

  5. Process in a boiling-water canner for 15 minutes (start timing when water returns to boiling). Remove to wire racks to cool completely.


Or use two 15-oz. cans black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
