I saw this recipe in the Tyler newspaper and I don't even like blackeye peas and thought this might be good. Mentioned it to a friend and she had already made it the day before and loved it. Made last night and it is awesome (this coming from someone who hates New Years Day because I hold to the southern tradition of pork, greens and blackeye peas, which I gag on. But this is wonderful. Comes from Erica Cady 2007 Blackeyed Pea Festival in Athens, Texas. This is really better the longer and longer you let it sit.
