Storing and Freezing Options:
You can store your black-eyed peas in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for 3 days.
You can also freeze your black-eyed peas in a leak-proof container for up to 6 months.
Reheat them on the stove on medium for 5-8 minutes or until they are the temperature you desire.
To reheat them from frozen, let them thaw out for a couple of hours before you put them in the pan and then reheat until they are at the desired temperature for serving.
