Blackeye peas (beans) are wonderful in soups, which is the most frequent way to prepare them. Every bean variety has a slightly different flavor and it is good to try different ones in your recipes. The 5 gallon bucket holds approximately 35 pounds of blackeye peas.
Be prepared and have your food storage on hand!
Each bucket of dry beans is sealed with oxygen absorbers. Each bucket has a tear tab lid which contains a rubber gasket. Our plastic food grade buckets may be reused several times. If stored in a cool, dry place, beans should last 10+ years. In an emergency situation, boiling the beans in water for 20 minutes will kill any bacteria and will still give you some nutrition.
