Black-eyed peas

For blackeye peas usually Hanover is very good.
One can look over the water in which it is boiled to see if anything is floating.
One can use the “clap method” of putting some in their palm, looking over for holes, then clap hand over hand and turn to other hand and look over other side of beans.
One can alternatively place beans on the table and pull forward a few at a time and look over for holes or discoloration.
Please note that Halachically blackeye peas are ok, however it is the proper custom to check over in case there is infestation, so it does not require intense level of checking.
