What I was taught is that low acid foods must be done with a pressure canning method, and high acid foods can be done with the water bath method.

Black eye peas are a low acid food so the pressure canning method is best.

Here is a really good resource:

I got sick once from canned food that was not done right so I am very, very, very skittish on all processes but that is just me. I always ask...is it something you would be OK freezing instead?

They work well in soups and stews after freezing and they can be kept for 6 months.

Post back what you decide.

Here is some information on canning beans from the National Center for Home Food Preservation. They recommend using a pressure cooker to can these as the acid content is too low for a water bath canner to ensure safety.

If your peas are already cooked,there would be no need for bath! Half of the work is done.

Cooked soups and beans such as black-eyed peas need to be canned using a pressure cooker and not a water bath. This will seal them and allow you to keep them in your cupboard for up to 6 months I believe.

Beans need to be canned in a less side cooker. High acid foods like tomatoes and fruit can be canned in a water bath.
