Barbecued Black-Eyed Peas

Barbecued Black-Eyed Peas created by Baby Kato

A fantastic alternative to the ho-hum baked beans served at BBQs. This tasty side can be served hot at the BBQ or cold as a salad type dish. Really good the day after. Just add some more liquid and warm slowly, covered. Black Eyes have a natural smoky flavour and go really well with BBQ or just try as a side dish with whatever! I have had this recipe for about 30 years and just love it when I rediscover the wonderful blend of tastes. For best results, do not use canned Black Eyes - although, speed may require that you do... the taste won't be the same. Well worth the effort of soaking and preparing. Time of preparation does not include soaking time.

    We never tried black eyed peas prepared this way before, they were awesome. So much flavor. We now have a new way to enjoy this delicious pea. The flavors were delicious in this dish and the textures were also spot on. We used a hot based barbecue sauce which gave this dish a nice zap of heat. Thanks for sharing your recipe, which we will enjoy often. Made for Spring Pac 2014.
