I used to love home canning up crowders/field peas, so nice later in the year to enjoy them. Shelling is sort of a zen thing.

...when one has easy shelling pods.

I have this one variety of a dry common bean where the pod constricts around the beans so tight, there is basically no air space. It is not a tranquil experience in shelling.

Shelling is the difficult part, indeed.

Mmmm, if the shelling was that awful on a bean, I would give it a try of really letting them get very dry and smacking the beans out of the pods in a pillow case sort of thing. Release those aggressions time, LOL!!

Otherwise, for me, sort of a repetitive no thinking about it thing while my mind idles or we are chatting and popping out peas or beans.
