Marsh Hen Mill Sea Island Red Peas
Sea Island Red Peas represent the variety of heirloom field peas that informed early versions of the dish we know as Hoppin' John in Coastal Carolina. Expressing the vigor of their African diversity with bold flavor and exceptional nutrition, Sea Island Red Peas cook to a sweet, creamy richness. Outstanding when smoked pork enters their world, Sea Island Peas reach maximum appeal ladled over a bowl of Carolina Gold Rice Grits. Anson Mills is proud to bring the companion crops of rice and peas back into Charleston, drawing comforting flavors from the 17th century into the 21st.
