The butternut squash flavor is mild, borderline nonexistent, but it sure did give the peas a lovely orange hue!

The butternut squash flavor is mild, borderline nonexistent, but it sure did give the peas a lovely orange hue!

This recipe is very reminiscent of pork and beans.  It’s a little bit sweet, with a creamy texture and hint of BBQ flavor. 
 
I utilized the good ole Southern variety of Vigna unguiculata: Pink-eyed Purple-Hulled Peas.  This variety of field peas has a much milder taste than black-eyed peas.  Then, instead of sweetening the peas with a more traditional method [namely, sugar], I used butternut squash.  It completely cooked down and added both sweetness and a creamy texture.  The sweet red bell pepper may have also aided in sweetening up the dish.  The finishing touch was the sausage.  I’m still on a deer sausage kick, since there is a plethora of it in my freezer.
