Black eyed peas are easy. This was my first time making fresh black eyed peas.
You need 6 cups chicken broth, 1 pound of dried black eyed peas, 1 vidalia onion, some cubed ham, a few strips of bacon, 3 teaspoons minced garlic, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder.
Cut up the onion and the strips of bacon. Put all of the ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
Yes, it was that easy. Fresh black eyed peas are much better than canned.
