These are the most delicious black eyed peas I've ever had, and I'm a Southern girl who grew up eating BEP all my life! I only changed a few things. We had a bone and meat left over from our Christmas ham, so I didn't use bacon. But I will next time I cook this. Also, I used fresh thyme instead of dried, and added celery and bell peppers that I had left over in the fridge. I was surprised how well all the liquid cooked down! Having that amount of liquid helped to really blend all the flavor swell; and the celery, bell peppers, and onions simply disintegrated into the blend so that you don't see them, but can taste their flavoring. My husband and I adore these peas!! I'll be cooking this again in the near future!!!
