This is a must make recipe for New Years. This Crockpot Black Eyed Peas recipe is full of flavor and one of the best I have ever tasted!  They are also a perfect use for that left over ham bone!

Why Eat Black Eyed Peas for New Years

Black Eyed Peas are one of my hubby’s favorites and have long been a New Year’s Tradition in the South. Do you want to know why??

The tradition dates back to the Civil War, when Union troops, especially in areas targeted by General William Tecumseh Sherman, typically stripped the countryside of all stored food, crops, and livestock, and destroyed whatever they could not carry away. At that time, Northerners considered “field peas” and field corn suitable only for animal fodder, and did not steal or destroy these humble foods (Wikipedia)

That is your history lesson for the day.

Where to get a Ham Bone?

Anyhow, I know many of you have a ham bone left over from Christmas, so this is the perfect time to put it to use. If you do not have a ham bone left, you can get a ham hock at any local meat department or butcher. The ham bone makes these peas amazing! I actually think it is. It adds serious flavor to these otherwise bland peas.

You can serve these as a side dish, or even as a meal oven some rice. Either way, your house will smell amazing as these simmer in the crockpot all day long. YUM!

Put all of your ingredients in your crockpot and put the lid on. Don’t open it again for about 8 hours. I recommend a 6 qt crockpot for this recipe since it makes quite a bit.

Did you know? Every time you lift the lid when you are cooking with a crockpot you increase the cooking time by 20 minutes. Really…it’s true! 🙂

Store in leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. You can also freeze extras to enjoy later.

  1. Looks good! Do you drain the peas after soaking overnight, or do you add them to the crock pot along with the water? I’m guessing that they are drained, but wanted to make sure for cooks who may not know they are supposed to do that. Thanks for the recipe….I have a ham bone in the freezer and this is what I will use it for! Happy New Year!

    I just made this and it was absolutely delicious with the beef broth. I did add a onion though because that’s what I like and I will definitely make it this way again. Everyone loved it.

    It was great!!! I wish there was a setting to make less because I only needed like 4 servings but I guess that would mean to cut everything in half. But I saw the button to make 2X and 3x more.
