Oh I am sorry, I didn't mean for confusion. Crowder peas are more red than black eye peas, they are a little different but from the same family. They are very close. Also blackeye peas are a tiny bit bigger. You can find both crowder peas and blackeye peas in your local supermarket.
I'll post the difference. I'll look it up.

Photobucket is not working tonight. You can see in your own grocery store that crowder peas and blackeye peas are different. I know, I grow both.

As far as I'm concerned, it doesn't matter. Russets were what I had. If I'd had red-skinned potatoes, or Yukon Gold, I would have used them.

No, they are a different critter. Although though they are classified as a field pea, like black-eyes, cream peas, pink-eye purple hulled and several others, the round brown peas, cooked with bacon or ham and onions, just like ham beans, are wonderfully hearty and meaty. They have their own taste, which is nothing like black-eye peas, IMHO.
Ya gotta have cornbread with'em!

Best "dirty mashed" I ever had was up in Detroit - mashed with bacon, sour cream, chopped green onions and Lord knows what else. Most excellent!
