PurpleHull Pea Festival Recipes

PurpleHull Pea Fritters

1 cup fresh shelled purplehull peas
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
Vegetable oil
If the peas are not very tender and young,
simmer them in boiling water for 10 to 15
minutes first.  Process peas in blender or food
processor.  Combine well with egg, onion, salt,
and ground red pepper.  In a heavy frying pan,
heat oil to 375 degrees, or until smoky haze
appears.  Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls into the
hot oil and and fry until golden brown on both
sides.  Drain on paper towels.  Serve hot as an
accompaniment to cocktails or as an appetizer.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
