Zesty black-eyed peas in an easy crockpot recipe make for a delicious meal to come home to! We always have black-eyed peas on New Year's Day. You can use canned black-eyed peas as well, and shorten cook time by half... but give the dry beans a try! You'll know what went into them and be impressed at how very easy it is to cook them.
This base recipe was one of Deb's Recipes (129926) until I modified it so much that I decided I'd better post it with changes so I don't lose my tattered written-on and splattered paper copy!
It's a great recipe and the extra shredded zucchini disappears into the flavor of chicken etc - your family may never know, frankly, how much you just are lovin' on them with their meal!
If you spend an extra 30-45 minutes making homemade tortillas, your jaw will drop at how much better they taste than the preservative-laden store version!
Buffalo berries make a highly prized jelly - part of the high marks go for the fact that they're atrocious to pick! If your fingers survive the long, needle sharp thorns, you've got a beautiful jelly in the making.
If you pick your berries prior to a frost, you will not need to add pectin. If the fruit is overripe or has been through a hard frost, add 3 oz liquid pectin before boiling.
