I got this recipe off a package of blackeyed peas and tweaked it a little bit. This is the way I always make our New Years blackeyed peas.

Excellent recipe! I used fresh purple-eyed peas from the Farmers Market and added about 3/4 cup of finely chopped baby kale in the last minute of cooking. Yum!

Yummy! I normally just cook my peas with some bacon or salt pork, but this was delicious! No need to add salt...plenty with the soy sauce, bacon, and ketchup. I recommend no salt or sodium free chicken broth. This is close enough to "traditional" to satisfy old-timers, but adds a twist to please everyone. Thanks for sharing!
