  1. This is my favorite recipe for black-eyed peas.  I got it from here: southernfood.about.com/od/crockpotbeans/r/bl120c3.htm



    • 1 pound dried black-eyed peas
    • 1 large onion
    • 1 large ham hock
    • 2 to 4 slices cooked bacon (can use heat 'n eat kind)
    • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, or use 1 fresh clove garlic, minced
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt



    In a large saucepan, cover peas with water to 3 inches over the peas. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, then simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Place ham hock, sliced onion, bacon, pepper, garlic and salt in the slow cooker/Crock Pot. Pour in 3 cups water. Cover and cook on HIGH until peas are tender and ready to go in. When peas are tender, transfer to the slow cooker/Crock Pot. Reduce heat to LOW; cover and cook for 7 to 9 hours. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve with hot cornbread. Black-eyed pea recipe serves 6 to 8.
