"Our family was visiting, and we went to Disney World on New Year's Day. I just had to have black-eyed peas before midnight. Make it easy, soak black-eyed peas in the slow cooker overnight. This is a little thinner, like a very rich soup. We really enjoyed it; hope you will too! Hot buttered cornbread and chunky applesauce are my favorites to serve with black-eyed peas."
