I am trying to find a story my mother in law used to tell my daughter. All I can remember about it is the little pea tore something and it was sewn up with black thread and that’s how the black eyed pea came to be. She was from the south and in 1980 was in her 60’s so it is a very old story. I found one by the Bros grim that might be it or close to it The coal the straw and the pea. My daughter loved this story and she now has a daughter and would like to tell her the story. I have searched and searched and can’t find it. Maybe you can help
Thanks so much. Lonnie
