Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
SOAK YOUR BEANS FIRST!! This is an excellent recipe, but I am concerned about all the comments regarding the suggestions to NOT soak the beans prior to cooking them. No, you don't need to soak them before cooking to "soften" them but for more important reasons. Everyone needs to read the following article about the why soaking ALL beans is critical to releasing the anti-nutrients in them and enzyme inhibitors. It has nothing to do with making the beans "softer" and easier to cook. Article: http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/why-you-must-soak-your-beans/ Besides, all it entails is putting your beans in some water overnight to soak before you cook them...how hard is that?
