    Great recipe. We use smoked turkey drumstick. It gives it the taste of ham hocks and has much more meat. Wonderful for a family get together!_

    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.
