Down Home Black Eyed Peas

My sweet friend, Myrnie, over at I Wonder Woman, has influenced me to eat more of a bean-based diet. This is for reasons like health, food storage rotation and concern for how animals are treated and if they are fed hormones, etc. (I still eat meat, I'm just more careful where it comes from!). So, what better way to do this than to begin with my all time Southern staple Black-Eyed Peas.

Usually, I just crockpot my dried black eyes with a couple of slices of bacon or a ham hock and add water and salt, but THIS time...I tried a new recipe online for Down Home Black Eyed Peas and it beats anything else I've tried ever! Try it for yourself and see how wonderful tasting they are.

I have a 5 gallon bucket of beans I need to start using. I've had them for 6 months or so, but I have no idea how to make beans taste good. I have pinto beans...any tips? I would love to be able to use my crockpot.

We've been eating lots of beans as well, and shredded chicken...trying to cut down on grocery costs and eat healthier. This is a great recipe...I made a version of it. Love black eyed peas, yummy. :)
