Delicious! Got some Crowder Peas at our farmer's market and found this recipe. I had no bacon or ham (although both would be great in this recipe) so I used 1 tablespoon butter. No bell peppers, so I added an anaheim pepper, also from the market. Instead of garlic powder I used a fat garlic clove. And I didn't crush the bay leaf but put it in whole & removed it when ready to serve. Great recipe and great seasonings. Thanks GLOKEY--it was just what I needed!
not the flavor I was looking for.
Holy Moly! These were great! I have eaten crowder peas/purple hull peas forever but not like this. Didn't use the ham and didn't miss it. Used minced garlic and cooked my fresh peas for the first hour with a slice of uncooked bacon as instructed by my southern relatives. Saved in my recipes for use again and again. Thanks.
I am giving this 5 stars - because I do not want to ruin the rating - but I searched literally probably 40 stores by phone and in person and could not find crowder peas in my state (Utah). I bought all the ingredients and it was a tremendous let down. Anybody familiar with crowder peas - I would love a good substitue. I read you could use blackeyed peas but the flavor was much milder - which is kind of a letdown. I so want this to be authentic. Any ideas from any of you would be appreciated??
Wonderful. Full of flavor and easy to make. My 2 year old had 3 helpings!
I love some Crowder peas. I would say the thyme is not necessary though, just let the taste of the peas come through, please
This recipe was fabulous and I even made it wrong! I could not find crowder peas anywhere, so I decided to substitute black-eyed peas. Unfortunately I had everything ready to go and realized I did not have black-eyed peas. I used baby butter beans instead and it was still wonderful. I served it with yellow rice. A big hit. I will definitely add this to my menu more often.
I doubled the recipe (except for the water, kept that at 2 cups) and added a lot more ham, making this into a main dish. I had to use black-eyed peas because I couldn't find crowder peas. Very, very tasty! I will use this on New Year's Day for the traditional serving of black-eyed peas for good fortune in the new year. Thank you!
