I have acquired several bags of blackeyed peas, and I've been looking for ways to use them. For this dish, I doubled the recipe, presoaked my peas, and reduced the water (just enough to cover). I found the flavor lacking, so I added some Creole seasoning and a little barbecue sauce and brown sugar, so the end result was very similar to baked beans, only spicier. This dish was pretty good, though not quite as good as "real" baked beans. It is, however, a good way to use up extra blackeyed peas. I rated it a 3 because the recipe did require quite a bit of tweaking (especially with regard to water content) in order to yield good results.
