Purple Hull Peas are a lot like black eyed peas. We buy ours fresh and already shelled from a roadside farm stand in East Texas. We keep them in a cooler for our four hour trip back home. I put them in the fridge and make this ASAP usually the next day. I got this recipe from purplehull.com. but I use half the sugar and half the salt that the original had. We love the healthier version and hope you will too.
DH love this because of the garlic. I love it because I love my Crock Pot.
I adapted this one from Southern Food.about.com.
I use a six quart Crock Pot with a liner and I mince and chop and slice all the veggies with my food processor.
