Prep Time: 6 to 24 hours to soak peas
Cook Time: 8 hours
Total Time: 14 to 32 hours

Servings: 8


  • 1 bag (16 ounces) dried black-eyed peas, rinsed, picked over and soaked according to package directions
  • 1 smoked ham hock or 1 - 2 cups chopped cooked ham
  • 1 onion, chopped

Love black-eyed peas! I like to throw some finely shredded collard, mustard or turnip greens in them, too.
This looks really good. 😋

I'm one of those people who typically only eat black-eyed peas on New Year's, so I can see now that I need to change that, LOL! Thanks for the yummy recipe.
