These days, many people ask me how to make sour beans? Some asked me to write a recipe for sour beans, and I agreed. First of all, it is clear that the pickled sour beans are called cowpeas. Why not say sour cowpeas directly, but sour beans? I don’t know. Based on my experience as a gourmet, this is the name of many places, because some places call cowpeas beans and beans, which are divided into long beans and short beans. This kind of beans can be eaten raw or cooked without poisoning. I remember eating fresh raw cowpeas when I was a child. It’s really crisp and refreshing. At that time, the old people cut a handful of tender cowpeas directly, mixed them with salt and diced pepper, and pickled them for a long time, which was a refreshing cold dish! Therefore, the sour beans pickled with cowpeas can be eaten raw. They can be chopped and mixed with sesame oil. You can rest assured that they will not be poisoned. But it is not recommended to eat more. The fried minced meat with sour beans we often eat is pickled with this kind of cowpea.
