This is good any time of the year. I've made it several times since I first saw the recipe.
I made this with a few additions, i.e., minced garlic, salt/black pepper. The dish was cooked on low for 6 hours and the peas were still crunchy and so were the carrots. I have a high end slow cooker so it was not the cooker that this dish was made in. I tried cooking additional 2 hours on high and still not done so I put the stuff in a pot and next day cooked on low for 1 1/2 hours to complete the cooking. I soaked the peas, etc. like instructed. Won't make in cooker again but this can be made on the stovetop so since husband liked it and on vitamin K diet I will make again.
Surprisingly filling. Even my sis who hates black-eyed peas loved this dish! It makes a ton, and it's even better the next day after the flavors have had a chance to combine. Definitely add the suggested cayenne and some salt, which is not in the recipe.
It was very good, but with my substitutions it could have easily been a non-slowcooker recipe. I used canned black eyed peas because I feared getting them well cooked in time. I forgot to add the cummin, but it had good zing without it. I used some sandwich ham that I already had on hand, and remembered ham doesn't really do well in the crock pot; it kinda takes on a weird texture. And I used some kale greens I froze from last fall. So next time with the canned black eyed peas I'll just cook the bacon a little more before adding veggies and then heat it all up on the stove and maybe just keep warm in the crockpot. But overall, it was super tasty! Even the kids liked it on rice.
I used the pinto beans I had on hand, used all of my Christmas ham & threw the bone into the pot too. We like it spicy here at mynhome so I used fire roasted Tex-Mex canned tomatoes and 2 jalepenos finely chopped. I also didn't have any bacon I put "pork jowel bacon" aka salted pork in but only 4 slices that I nicely panfried to a crisp:)~.......super Flavorful great paired with jalopeno cornbread!!!!
Exciting new way to eat blackeyed peas on New Year's day. Mustard greens were omitted by mistake. Didn't miss them, just eat on the side with corn bread. Delicious
The pot liquor alone is delicious! Even my picky husband enjoyed this! We ate it over rice and we tried it alone with some crumbled cornbread in the bowl. It's fabulous either way. I neglected to add the cumin and ham..... seasoned at the end of cooking with some ground black pepper.
Although I haven't made this yet, I intend to because it sounds an awful lot like 'Hoppin' John' that my Nawlins relatives make for New Years Day. We loved it but I didn't use a slow cooker so it was a bit time consuming. This sounds so much easier!
The cumin taste was a little strong for me, but overall really good.
This was a good choice for a cold fall day. I also added a piece of smoke meat to the crock pot. I used canned greens instead and it turned out delicious. My family loved it. I will surely be making it again.
