Begging for help with black-eyed pea pods!

I just picked a bunch of black-eyed pea pods from my square foot garden and I have NO clue what to do with them. Some are sort of dry and brown, some are not so dry, but are greenish brown and some are more greenish.


I put them in the fridge overnight and now they're on the counter. Do I open the pods?? And if I do, what do I do with the peas inside? I have some black-eyed pea recipes, but I have no clue if it means the raw peas right from the pod... or is there some drying process?

I literally have no clue what to do with this bag of pea pods and I read that you need to do whatever you do with peas right away... it's been about 18 hrs since they've been picked.

Thanks so much!
