We seem to have lost our "New Recipes" category so I am starting a new one.

Crock Pot Black-eyed Peas
1 (16 oz) bag dried black-eyed peas
1 (16 oz) can of chicken broth
1 ham hock or 1 cup diced, cooked ham
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 c. diced celery
1 small onion, chopped
1 (16 oz ) can diced tomatoes (optional)
1 (15 oz) can chopped okra (optional) (can use frozen okra)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Rinse peas, add to crockpot with enough water to cover all ingredients. Add chicken broth, ham, garlic, celery and onion, salt and pepper. (If you just want black-eyed peas, stop here with recipe and cook on high for 4 hrs. or low for 7 hrs. or until peas and celery are cooked). The tomatoes and okra can be added half way into the cooking for a recipe more like Hoppin John.

I used some ham (leftover in the freezer from Christmas) and did include the tomatoes and okra. Served it with cornbread & cooked cabbage on New Years Day. We enjoyed it and the remainder went into the freezer for another meal.
