I've never had black-eyed peas before, so I didn't have any experience in preparing them. I did the recipe in the crockpot as written, but after 12 hours of cooking (half on low and half on high), the black-eyed peas hadn't softened. I think for this type of bean, it would have been better to cook in a pot on the stove top. I'll try it again sometime using the stove top method. I think I would also used canned, crushed tomatoes instead of fresh tomatoes, since the fresh tomatoes were out of season and not very tasty. Just my opinion on this.
