This was delicious!! I used one package of Jennie-O smoked turkey sausage instead of ham and it was very flavorful. Great meal for a cold winter night.
Thanks Erica for the GREAT FEEDBACK! So glad you enjoyed! 🙂
does the ham hock need to be cooked before it goes into the crock pot?
The picture looks more like a thick soup. Sounds delicious! Pinning it! Happy New Year!
Do you really have to soak the beans before cooking? I would have thought with that many hours in a slow cooker they wouldn’t need pre-soaking.
Can you use canned black eyed peas in this recipe?
Yes Amy if you prefer the canned black eyed peas you certainly can. Happy Crocking!
