1 pound dried black-eyed peas
2 ham hocks or a ham bone with ham left on it
pepper, to taste
2 medium onions, sliced
hot sauce


Place the ham bones or hocks in a crockpot, add the peas after they have been rinsed (but not soaked), and cover with water completely.

Cook all day on low, or 4 or 5 hours on high.

Crockpots vary, so keep checking. You may need to add more water. Stir a couple of times while checking. Some people like them almost mushy, but others not quite that soft.

Season with pepper if you wish. Serve with slices of onion and hot sauce--a smooth cayenne variety.

I used this recipe and loved it - I added potatoes per my husband's suggestion (his mother served this rendition) - wonderful!
Serving this again on New Year's Day!
